These classics include stories about the Jewish learning ethic, Drop By Drop By Drop, the Jewish belief in God, The Idol Smasher, Jewish determination, Miriam's Well, and the Jewish goal of creating
The stories in this book have become part of the legacy that links both the written tradition (the Torah) and the oral tradition (the Talmud) to the Jewish people.
These classics include stories about the Jewish learning ethic, Drop By Drop By Drop, the Jewish belief in God, The Idol Smasher, Jewish determination, Miriam's Well, and the Jewish goal of creating peace and harmony in this world, Aaron The Peacemaker.
The characters in these stories sometimes get what they deserve, as in Teach Me On One Foot, and some deserve what they get, like Honi The Rainmaker. They are rarely at a loss for words, as in The Power Of The Tongue, and are always ready to teach others about the Jewish experience -- The Bitter And The Sweet.
Each story concludes with a "Now Consider This" section, designed to enrich your child's learning experience. The questions in this section develop the moral lessons described in the stories and help perpetuate their role as classics of the Jewish home.
