I purchased this book along with several other books for our synagogue's children's library based on the good reviews and High Holy Days theme. Unfortunately, this book portrays men and women in very "traditional" gender roles, with the women as "housewives" and the men as shopkeepers. I understand that this is intended to be a historical fable but it's not something I'd like to support or introduce as normal for my son.

A sweet book about the Sabbath and Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year holiday. Accessible to young children due to the storyline, the amusing illustrations, and the occasional sing-song prose, this book is a holiday classic!

This is a very cute story about why we use a round challah for Rosh Hashanah. I finally bought the book this year after searching for it every year. My class really loves it.
