The Family Torah

Authored by Jennifer Tzivia MacLeod
Illustrated by Teddy Akiva MacLeod

***** "We have tried several different weekly Torah lessons and this one rates at the top of our list." ***** "Presents Biblical stories accurately, in a very conversational way" Discover why parents and teachers are turning to The Family Torah to read aloud and share the joys of the Torah and its lessons, in the short, simple weekly installments that have carried the Jewish people through millennia. Its focus is mainly on pshat — the plain meaning of the Torah — with a sprinkling of midrash, the lively "stories behind the stories" that are so often crucial to understanding the Torah's text. The distinction between pshat and midrash is clearly delineated to help adults and children gain a clear understanding of the function of each. This sense of balance, along with the book’s clearly-written, lively Torah narrative, will appeal to a range of ages, convincing parents, teachers and children alike that the story of the Torah is itself exciting and relevant, an integral part of our precious tradition... and a joy to share together. Ideal for: Classroom teachers Parents Homeschoolers Synagogue youth leaders and more...
