Eliezer Segal's approach to Jewish history and tradition is light-hearted and humorous. In Those Days, At This Time is a collection of entertaining short essays that explores the intricate framework of sacred days and times that make up the Jewish festival calendar. Each piece is devoted to an occasion in the cycle of sacred seasons. With such intriguing titles as "Getting a Handel on Hanukkah" and "The Eggs and the Exodus," these essays bring a touch of whimsy to a complex and deep-rooted religious tradition. Segal investigates the ways festival observances have been shaped over the generations, looking at different interpretations of their rituals, their symbolism, and their adaptation to changing historical circumstances.
