    A brilliant tale about facing the giants and good conduct. The section concerning the healing process of Hadassah is very delicate and full of heartfelt emotions without placing too much prominence on certain matters. Rabbi Sipporah Joseph's tale is more than just a story. It touches the essence of what it means to be alive.

    This Spirit Tale really got to me since it addresses things I'm concerned about too. In a friendly accessible and adventurous story author Rabbi Sipporah addresses attitudes. Attitudes concerning people who are different than one self and the true meaning of leadership. This story has a social change objective both on the individual as well as societal level.

    Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite

    Spirit Tale Five: Teacher of Knowledge is the fifth in a series of religious tales written by Rabbi Sipporah Joseph. They are written for both Jews and Gentiles. There are seven teachers, including the Dean, in the School of Divine Instruction. The students are of varied backgrounds and ages, but they are all united in their search for spiritual growth. Each student progresses at their own speed as they gain knowledge and understanding. The tales are presented by Grandmother Sasson and Grandpa Sereno, who also conduct discussions after each tale. The Teacher of Knowledge Tale is about diversity, and how intolerance of others' customs and beliefs darkens the world. The Teacher uses the metaphor of a spider's web to explain how intolerance blights the world and 'causes an atmosphere of stench.'

    The world seems to stop and stand still when I read the Spirit Tales, Rabbi Sipporah Joseph's series of religious tales. I found Spirit Tale Five to be as marvelous as its predecessors in the series. While I was raised as a Christian, I only recently discovered that my grandfather was Jewish, and these tales are personally valuable to me as a way to connect with his traditions and faith and to begin my own journey. When I read The Spirit Tales, I can envision myself as one of the students progressing slowly through the lessons at the school and participating in the discussions with Grandmother and Grandpa. Spirit Tale Five: Teacher of Knowledge is a tale you can read and read again; it's never preachy or didactic, and its appeal is quite universal. It's most highly recommended.
