The Jewish future is up to you in this sixth volume of Kenneth Roseman's popular Do-It-Yourself Jewish Adventure series. Until the Messiah Comes takes young readers on another grand trek back in UNTIL time to the end of the nineteenth century. Set at the turn of the century, readers explore Jewish history and make strategic decisions that still have an impact on Jewish life today. Turning the pages, one has to decide: to sail to Ellis Island or escape the pogroms in Palestine; to join the forces of socialism, Zionism, or secularism; how to respond to the rift between the different practices of Judaism in America and Europe. Each decision creates a thrilling story line in this exciting new addition to Kenneth Roseman's entertaining and educational Jewish adventure series. After reading the book, readers will realize how this "game of chance" has actually transpired throughout history.
