 Twelve monthly grids and full-color artwork

The sacred cycle of ceremonies, festivals, and traditions that give shape and meaning to Jewish life find loving expression in the vibrant and colorful folk-art paintings of Malcah Zeldis. A self-taught artist, Zeldis is a first-generation American whose family emigrated from Russia. She draws on childhood memories, her experiences living in various Orthodox neighborhoods, and the years she spent living in Israel to create richly detailed paintings illustrating the union of the spiritual and domestic that characterizes Judaism.
 
Each of the first twelve months of this sixteen-month calendar features a colorful reproduction, accompanied by notes on the traditions portrayed. The last four months are grouped on one page, also accompanied by a painting and commentary. The calendar includes Jewish holidays, days of the Jewish year, weekly Torah readings, and a list of candle-lighting times for selected cities.
