Did Jew Know? by Emily Stone

 Day number two brings us a book called "Did Jew Know? A Handy Primer on the Customs, Culture & Practice of the Chosen People" by Emily Stone.

This book is 255 pages of about every thing you'd want to know about Jewish life and customs. You want to know if Camel meet is Kosher it's here do you want to Jewish Marriage customs it's in the book. There is a lot to this book and I found this book to be kind of over whelming at times. Yeah it has a lot of information but it gets kind of to the point overload. The Star of David wallpaper when you first open the book gives me vertigo. Small complaint/comment.

This is not a book that I would want to read cover to cover but just use it as a reference book.

It's a good reference book full of information and let's leave it at that.

Published Chronicle Books of San Francisco, CA in 2013.

Cheers,

Brian Guy
