 Amazon Reviews

Format: Hardcover

Well, I have just started reading this book, but felt like I already need to write a review, so more people would read this important and amazing book.
The book takes you into an incredible journey, of what seems to be one of the most interesting cultures we have in this world.
No, it’s not what you think. This book isn’t trying to convince you that the Jewish people are better than others, nor make you pitty them because of their tough history, it will give you a better understanding and different perspective of not only them but the world as a whole.The pictures are great and the story is well written. You won’t be disappointed!

Format: Hardcover

Your Story Our Sipur is full of beautiful photography from Jewish cultures and communities around the world. The book follows the Jewish calendar and provides stories about the author’s amazing adventures discovering the differences in Jewish life worldwide. Such an inspiration to travel and learn about the culture.
