Every holiday has two parts: its historical background and its laws. This unique new offering from Shmuel Blitz – especially for children – presents both. He begins by telling us the “story.” We’ll learn the history of the Exodus from Egypt; the heroism of the Maccabees, Chana and her seven sons; and Yehudis; the story of Rabbi Akiva and his rise from unlearned shepherd to the great sage of our people.
So it is with every one of our festivals. And then – once we know the story – we learn the laws.
Everything is presented simply, accurately, and clearly, in the famous Shmuel Blitz manner. With Tova Katz’s beautiful illustrations, it’s a treasure house of fun-filled learning.
Read it to your little ones. Before long they’ll know it by heart and “read” it to you. Bring a sparkle to your Yom Tov with this new hit from a master storyteller.
