I want to thank you and your staff for all you did to help us select and receive the beautiful miniature kiddush cups. We purchased these for our seniors who are residents of the Kobernick-Anchin campus here in Sarasota, Florida who previously had been using plastic cups! We dedicated the new kiddush cups at our Kabbalat Shabbat service - residents held the cups with such joy, they loved the Jerusalem design which reminded them of long-ago visits to Israel. Several residents with Alzheimer's spoke up, some for the first time in months. Thank you so much. Rabbi Barbara Aiello, resident rabbi, Kobernick Campus, Sarasota, FL
Yom Kippur Children's Machzor, Hebrew Only
The Yom Kipur Children's Machzor is a wonderful children's prayer book for the holiest day of the year, Yom Kipur. The Yom Kipur Children's Machzor is a beautifully illustrated prayer book. It represents several passages of prayer, written in Hebrew and translated to English, in a unique and delightful way. Each chosen passage has its own clay sculpture visualizing the theme of that specific prayer from the viewpoint of the artist, Noam Zimmerman. In this book a child can find true understanding of the Yom Kipur prayers and feel his connection to this special day.
Noam Zimmerman, of Kfar Adumim, Israel, is a fourteen year old artist who specializes in clay sculpting. The images she uses in this prayer book were designed by Noam for her Bat Mitzvah. She worked on this specific project for nine months. + The fact that these clay sculptures were made by a child enhances the influence on children, since they can easily relate to a similar perspective of the prayers. + As parents and adults, we have the responsibility to find the best method to pass down to our children the true meaning of the Jewish Holidays, in general, and of Yom Kipur in particular. This great book is the perfect way to arouse their interest and give them the opportunity to take part in the Yom Kipur prayers. + The Yom Kipur Children's Machzor, by Gefen Publishers, is a great book and a perfect Jewish gift for any child.
