“The large, full-color photographs beautifully depict the exquisite desert scenery as well as the warmth and spirit of this unique community and are a perfect complement to the descrip­tive, yet concise, text.” — starred review, Jewish Book Council

AJL Newsletter

“The natural beauty of the environment and rock formations enhance a child’s appreciation of the blessings of nature and of God. This is a wonderful read-aloud and shared resource to illustrate a unique Passover observance.” — AJL Reviews

Publishers Weekly

" . . . armchair travelers should enjoy taking in the photos of the magnificent red rock formations (one of the famous arches plays a recurring role in the story) and seeing how modern-day Jews come together for a day of hiking, dancing, prayer, and – of course – eating." — Publisher’s Weekly

Kirkus Reviews

“Expressive, beautiful color photography forms the visual storytelling accompaniment to this modern-day communal Seder in the desert in Moav, Utah . . . Lovely, different and yet familiar.” — Kirkus Reviews
