Title: 101 Reasons To Visit Israel
Author: Estie Solomon
Publisher: Artzy Books
Estie Solomon and her son Dovid (a superb photographer) spent quality time touring their new home, the State of Israel, and created a Box of Chocolate format for presenting the goodies that abound in the Holy Land.
From the riveting photos that Dovid took to the succinctly worded captions supplied by Estie, the pamphlet-sized paperback is a tempting look at life in the Jewish homeland. As you turn the pages, you just won’t know what to expect, but the overall effect is powerful. The duo created a wistful look at Jewish history and sent it to the Jewish world as an invitation to take one’s rightful place at history’s center stage.
An Artzy Books publication (Jerusalem and New York), 101 Reasons to Visit Israel can be a great gift for relatives left behind upon making aliyah, and a tempting reason for them to join you.
As life goes along its unpredictable way, this book can help an unaffiliated Jew to feel more grounded in their Jewish identity. 101 Reasons to Visit Israel belongs in synagogue and community center libraries, as well as on personal bookshelves, for it beautifully illustrates much of what Judaism is about.
