PoemsforJewish Holidays,
by Myra C. Livingston and Lloyd Bloom,
illustrator (Holiday House)
Poems fo r Jewish Holidays
is a unique collection of well-written
poems about the holidays accompanied by superbly drawn,
inspiring illustrations. The poems are contemporary, but the
drawings emphasize the traditional aspects of Jewish life. The
illustrations, handsome enough for framing, enhance the text
and — with their spiritual quality — help to unify this diverse
anthology.

A Walker in Jerusalem,
by Samuel Heilman (Summit Books)
A Walker in Jerusalem
evokes the love felt by Jews, Christians,
and Moslems for this timeless city. A haunting, superbly written
book, it reveals a Jerusalem that is a tapestry in time, encom­
passing the here and now as the there and then. It records the
rising and declining hopes and dreams of many peoples, includ­
ing: an Argentinian-Jewish cowboy who has recorded his every
impression of Jerusalem for forty years, an artisan, a mystical
rabbi, a womanizing monk, a German tour guide who never
returned home, a gentle Arab schoolteacher who writes poetry
about Jerusalem in English, a pious woodcarver and a fanatic
archaeologist.
