  • Entree to Judaism for Families: Jewish Cooking and Kitchen Conversations with Children

    According to author Tina Wasserman, her new book Entree to Judaism for Families: Jewish Cooking and Kitchen Conversations with Children gives "parents and grandparents the opportunity to spend time with children and give them skills and confidence through cooking, while sharing the vibrant history of their families and the Jewish people as told through food."

    Entree to Judaism for Families follows Tina's best selling cookbook Entree to Judaism: A Culinary Exploration of the Jewish Diaspora, which lead readers on a journey to sample the food and stories of Jewish communities around the world and across the ages.

    Entree to Judaism for Families provides the essential tools for helping children learn to cook with confidence, with clear, step-by-step instructions for every recipe and tips for adults to make the experience safe and rewarding. Every recipe is also a story, and Entree to Judaism for Families provides opportunities to share those stories, by learning the rich history of the communities that created the food, and sharing that food with your own family.

    Entree to Judaism for Families features:
    • "Kitchen Conversations" — conversations starters and activity suggestions to help families connect to Jewish history and each other
    • Beautiful photographs of every recipe in the book
    • Dozens of recipes for holidays or any day
    • Historical background for the recipes and the communities that created them
    • "Tina’s Tidbits" with tips for cooking with children and other suggestions for making the recipes your own

    My Jewish World: An Early Childhood Music Curriculum (Book/CD set)

    Music can be a wonderfully effective teaching tool for preschool aged children. My Jewish World guides teachers through the process of introducing and utilizing song in the classroom to teach Jewish values.

    In her comprehensive and easy to follow book, Judy Caplan Ginsburgh includes twenty-six songs, religious and secular, that will help to facilitate an environment of fun and learning. Each song addresses important Jewish concepts and many use Hebrew words and prayers. Judy provides comments, activities, and creative ideas, specific for each song, which can be used in the classroom to learn about being Jewish every day. The importance of saying the Sh'ma each morning, learning the Hebrew words for colors, understanding body parts, and the value of cooperation are only some of the Jewish concepts touched on in the book.

    In addition, Judy Ginsburgh includes a list of suggested books for many of the topics. These books help to reinforce and expand the lessons laid out in the curriculum.

    With a helpful glossary of Hebrew and Yiddish terms and the companion music CD, My Jewish World is a wonderful guide to making music significant in the Jewish classroom.

    Heads and Tales: Stories of the Sages to Enlighten Our Minds

    Rabbi Edwin Goldberg's new book Heads and Tales: Stories from the Sages to Enlighten our Minds brings age-old tales to life once more. Designed as an introduction to the art of reading rabbinic literature, Heads and Tales opens the door to the creative genius of the rabbis of long ago.

    Using this carefully selected collection of stories, Heads and Tales will help instill a love of Jewish stories, while also helping students gain the skills needed to be critical readers of these traditional stories. In addition, these stories demonstrate that the issues that concerned our ancestors in past generations are similar or are the same as those that concern us today. The tales found in the book, while they may have been written in years gone by, remain most relevant.
