"With beautiful images and words, The Garden of Time offers a magical path through the seasons and allows the sacred breath of life to blow through all our souls.

Gorgeous text and art illuminate Judaism, the calendar, and the environment for both children and adults.

Guides to the Jewish holidays and Jewish iconography are included.
