ON ALL OTHER NIGHTS: 

A Passover Celebration in 14 Stories

 

Ed. by Chris Baron, Joshua S. Levy, Naomi Milliner

Middle Grade, Abrams Children, 2024

ON ALL OTHER NIGHTS is a joyful middle-grade anthology centered around Passover—from an exciting array of bestselling and award-winning Jewish creators!

Welcome to Passover, a Jewish holiday that has been celebrated for thousands of years. The heart of Passover is the seder—a meal full of rituals, special foods, and songs—where we gather together to retell the story of the Exodus, when the Jewish people achieved freedom from Egypt.

And yet this story is about more than the ancient past. The seder’s themes of freedom, joy, tradition, and more, are timeless and universal, for all.

In this unprecedented collection of short stories, 14 bestselling and award-winning authors each reimagine a different step of the seder for today’s young readers. Through historical and contemporary fiction, verse and prose, fiction and nonfiction, these gifted writers from different Jewish traditions and backgrounds gather around the seder table and invite everyone to join them.

Reviews:

"Young people will become engrossed in the richly detailed narratives, learn a great deal about different ways to conduct a seder, and root for the protagonists. Unusual, entertaining, and deeply moving." ―Kirkus

"[W]elcoming and buoyant anthology...This who’s who of contemporary middlegrade Jewish literature, with a stockpile of Sydney Taylor Book Awards among the authors, offers stories in formats and tones consistent with their popular work and joyously reflective of the variety of their backgrounds and own Jewish traditions. A festive reflection of Judaism’s limitless range" ―Booklist

"A strong candidate for strenghtening and diversifying school and public library's holiday collections." ―School Library Journal
