Shavuot BOOKS

[book] The Ultimate Cheesecake Cookbook
by Joey Reynolds and Myra Chanin
St. Martin's Griffin, 2001
Imagine the creamiest, dreamiest, yummiest cheesecake you've ever tasted. Now imagine having it all for yourself whenever you want it! The Ultimate Cheesecake Cookbook makes homemade cheesecake so incredibly easy and fun, you'll be hard-pressed to find a more perfect dessert for every occasion. Famed radio personality Joey Reynolds and the queen of cheesecakes herself, Myra "Mother Wonderful" Chanin, have created lighthearted and simple-to-follow recipes for dozens of delicious cheesecakes--some fancy enough for your most formal dinner parties, some so easy they're practically instant--in lucsious flavors like Butter Nut, Apricot Almond, Strawberry Rhubarb, Chocolate Mint, Jomocha, and Ginger Pear. Joey and Myra also teach you how to make cheesecake muffing and cookies, as well as no-bake cheesecakes for those hot summer days, and they supply the key to creating your own custom cheesecake flavors.

[book] Reading Ruth
by Judith Kates
Ballantine, 1996 paperback
Traditionally the Book of Ruth is read during the Jewish holiday, Shavuot -- a holiday that celebrates the giving of the Torah (Old Testament) to the Jewish people. It is also a tradition during this holiday to spend the night studying the Old Testament (some people even stay up all night!). The year that I worked on the publicity for Reading Ruth, my sister and I decided to have our own study session during Shavuot and we read parts of this book together. We had a wonderful time reading the poems by Marge Piercy, Ruth Whitman, and Merle Feld and discussing the themes of the Book of Ruth -- including loss, the relationship between sisters, and the bond between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law. In addition to poetry, Reading Ruth includes essays, fiction, and personal narrative by famous Jewish women who are novelists, poets, rabbis, psychologists, and scholars. If you enjoy women studies and/or Bible studies you will enjoy Reading Ruth -- any time of the year! "With Reading Ruth, two creative scholars have brought together an amazingly eclectic group of Jewish novelists, essayists, poets, rabbis, psychologists, and scholars--including Cynthia Ozick, Marge Piercy, Francine Klagsbrun, and Nessa Rapoport--to explore one of the most beloved stories in the Bible. In lively essays, poetry, fiction, and personal narrative, the gamut of women's experience in the modern world is illuminated by this ancient story. Whether the essayists explore relationships between sisters, the complex bond between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law, the place of the "other" in society, the heartache of loss, the limitations of loyalty, or the elaborate connections of family, they give voice to an exciting array of thought and interpretation that endows this sacred tale with new life" Click the book cover above to read more.








[book] A Mountain of Blintzes
by Barbara Diamond Goldin, Anik McGrory (Illustrator)
Harcourt, 2001
Each spring Sarah, Max, and their children look forward to celebrating Shavuot with a mountain of delicious blintzes. But this year Sarah and Max are worried. Their pockets are empty, and with no extra money to spare, how can they afford to make a special treat like blintzes? Join Barbara Diamond Goldin's funny, big-hearted family in preparation for Shavuot, the Jewish holiday celebrating the day Moses received the Ten Commandments, and discover--as they do in a way that's sure to spark giggles--the true meaning of cooperation.
