It’s Saturday, and one family is setting out to walk together to shul. Inside the synagogue, they all say hello to their friends and the rabbi, then listen and watch as the Torah is read and held aloft. Singing aloud with everyone else is fun! In a welcome addition for children of any faith, this simple, warmly illustrated story takes an inviting look at a weekly Jewish tradition.
