  3. A Purim Story of Courage by Jane Yolen

    A Purim Story of Courage by Jane Yolen

    Micah loved the noise maker, known as a gragger, that he used at his family's Purim party. With it they celebrated the defeat of the wicked Haman, a bully from biblical times who tried to get rid of the Jews. The gragger made him feel mighty! But on his way home, the gragger was lost.

    This is the context of Mighty Micah, a new Purim picture book by bestselling author Jane Yolen.

    Micah was nervous that without his gragger, he wouldn't be able to be brave, like Queen Esther. 

    However, his gragger was powerful. It journeyed from a raccoon's hands, to a fish's mouth, to a heron's beak, back to Micah's front steps.

    Joyful at the return of his gragger, Micah takes it to school to show the class, so everyone could feel its mighty whirr, whirr, whirr, and they too could feel powerful and safe.

    Also included is a note from the author with a brief summary

  4. First Price Increase in Four Years

    We worked throughout the pandemic beyond to avoid price increases on school materials.

    And we succeeded: we held prices steady for four years across our backlist in our effort to support our school customers through a very difficult period, while making available the broadest and deepest selection of materials for Jewish education you can find anywhere. At the same time, as educators pivoted to Zoom and other remote learning options, we increased access to our materials by creating online versions, made downloadable pdfs and other versions available, and provided a variety of free instant lessons. As recently as this fall we made another rich set of resources and a number of digital children's picture books about Israel available at no charge for those seeking to help kids develop context for what has been going on since October 7.

    In the past two years, however, printing, freight, and other costs have skyrocketed. A series of meetings
