Comments to eBook Holy Days: The World of a Hasidic Family
Aloo
So disappointing. The author, Lis Harris, revels along with her friends in condescending attitudes about orthodox Jews. Rather than appreciate their deep devotion to G-d and religion, the author at every opportunity feels compelled to make snide remarks that borders on the anti-semitic.
A shallow and uninspiring account of what could have been a wonderful book if written by a far more impressive author.

Despite some readers' negative feedback I, for one, love this book! I have owned several copies which all have been given away. I find myself re-reading this book yearly. I feel a part of the families she visits.
Umdwyn
The book was interesting but the vocabulary was above my understanding. This does not include the
Hebrew words. I also found the history confusing. Overhall it was a learning piece. The focus was on this one
family and the history of Hasidim.
Malahelm
This book, which is based on a New Yorker article published several decades ago, is a fantastic glimse inside the familial world of ultra-Orthodox Jewry. Especially interesting is the role of women, and how they manage in this very controlled environment.
Abuseyourdna
I bought this book for someone lee who was interested in learning about Jewish life and what is means. She just wanted to learn a little more about religious Jews. Even though some of the info may not be accurate, it is a good overall introduction to Observant Jewish life and an enjoyable read.
Ceroelyu
Interesting book, but only to a limited interest group.
Memuro
Very intersting really enjoyed it.
I was very interested in the Hasidic way of life and found this book to be extremely informative. I suspect the Hasidic family interviewed over the course of a year or so is a good example of the average family in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn.
