The Ten Commandments speak to every part of our lives and hold important values for children. Rabbi Jeffrey Glickman frames this traditional text in a way a small child can understand. Beautifully illustrated, this is a wonderful first book for parents who want to introduce their children to religious ethics. Translating the commandments from the original Hebrew, Rabbi Glickman teaches important life lessons: adultery is really about keeping promises; words are powerful, so use them carefully. Concepts including love, respect, and humility are tenderly presented. This treasure for young and old includes activities and discussion starters that parents and educators can use to teach children about each of God? commandments. Children will enjoy finding a surprise on each page! Cozy up with your child, because this book will be read over and over.
It all starts with listening. Rabbi Jeffrey Glickman possesses a special ability to listen, hear, and remember. Rabbi Glickman has led congregations in Seattle; St. Joseph, Missouri; and South Windsor, Connecticut. Rabbi Glickman has earned graduate degrees; run marathons; taught at public schools, universities, and synagogues; founded a home for pregnant teens and a preschool in Haiti; is the chaplain for the local fire and police department; and still finds time to hear from many people and seek out new perspectives. These new insights help point Rabbi Glickman to write children? books and invent family board games. He and his wife, Mindy, continue to be amazed by their children, Ilana and Jarrett, Seth, Evan and Allison, Tal, Hanna, Naomi, and Micah.
