    It is fall 1943, and David Nathan knows life has changed since the Nazis have taken over the streets of his beloved city of Copenhagen (that’s in Denmark):

    Everyone is keeping secrets; David’s older sister, Rachel, sometimes doesn’t come home; and people are waiting...

    Thank You!

    The Navon family -- Rebecca, Ariella, Eitan, Elisha and Asaf -- gave us our pick for our new name: YeLAdim, which means children in Hebrew. The large L and A are in honor of where we live (good thing we aren't in New York or it wouldn't work). Thank you to all the kids who...

    Oh Jerusalem

    On June 6, or Iyar 28, we will celebrate Yom Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Day) in honor of the day Jerusalem was reunified during the Six-Day War in 1967.

    The Ugly Bug Ball

    In Parshat Shemini, we learn which animals are kosher. A young friend of mine asked: Why did God create both kosher and non-kosher animals? The sages of the Talmud ask the same question. They said there is something we can learn from every animal – kosher or...

    We read the story of Queen Esther, Megillat Esther, twice – on Thursday evening and Friday morning. Let's see if you know the story.

    Building Community

    This week's Torah portion, Vayakhel (meaning "and he gathered"), is about the community of Israelites building the Mishkan. Think about the communities you belong to: your school, your neighborhood and your synagogue. How can you be a bigger part of your...

    This week's portion is named for Moses' father-in-law, Yitro. Moses is exhausted because he spends the whole day talking to anyone who needs counseling or judgment. Yitro, who is visiting him, says: "You'll kill yourself if you keep up at this pace. Get some people to help...

    This week, we start a new year – and a new book. Shemot (Exodus) is the second book of the Torah. The Israelites are in the deepest winter of their lives – a dark slavery. In this book, we will read about their move toward freedom, rebirth and spring.

    Congratulations!

    This month, Tevet is the darkest month because the days are shortest. And, in this month, a siege began on Jerusalem, which eventually led to the destruction of the Temple. That is why we had a fast day on the 10th of Tevet (Dec. 22).

    But here's an interesting fact about Tevet and...

    At the Jewish Children's Bookfest at Mount Sinai on Nov. 14, children were given a journal and asked the following question:

    "What does being Jewish in America mean to me?"

    In Parshat Toldot, Jacob and Esau are born. Even though they are twins, they are opposites: Jacob is the quiet, studious type, while Esau is a hunter who loves to be out in the world. The world used to think of Jews as being just quiet and studious, but when Israel became a state the...

    Let's Work

    In this week's portion, Lech Lecha, we learn about a fight between the shepherds of Abraham and his nephew, Lot. There was plenty of space for everyone, but they weren't getting along so it seemed too crowded. Our rabbis teach us that when two people get along, they can...
