What do you say when your five-year old asks, ?What does God look like?? or ?Why am I Jewish?? By middle school the questions are tougher: ?Is the Torah true?? ?Why do I have to learn Hebrew?? This incredible new book suggests successful responses to these questions and many more, summarizing liberal Jewish thought in an accessible, easy-to-use format. The author, a rabbi and a mother, covers a broad array of topics, including God, holidays, ethics, history, Israel, prayer, Jewish diversity, practices, and identity. A must-have for Jewish educators and parents.
More than the centerpiece of Purim celebrations, Esther is unique in the biblical canon, and raises as many questions as it reveals answers. It is a rich source for text study, at Purim and throughout the year.
