Maggid Stories for Children #3: Holidays and Around the Year
With each succeeding volume of the Maggid Stories for Children, Chaviva Krohn Pfeiffer shows how much storytelling brilliance she has inherited from her famous father - the American Maggid, Rabbi Paysach Krohn. This third volume in the series takes young readers on an unforgettable journey around the year - and around the world. They will learn how a broken jug of Chanukah oil in Italy brought a man back to Torah observance. In Argentina, a rabbi's cheerful good morning wishes save his life. Children will meet an athlete who gave up the Olympics for Shabbos and learn of an astonishing miniature succah that enabled its owners to keep the mitzvah in the shadow of the Nazis. The tales, adapted from Rabbi Paysach Krohn's rich treasury of "maggid stories," are exciting and entertaining, and their imaginative illustrations, beautifully drawn by Chani Stern, make them even more memorable. The Maggid Stories for Children reinforces our youngsters' understanding of Jewish faith and practice in a way that they will want to read again and again.
