  5. Movie Based on "The Tattooed Torah" Premiering in March

    Movie Based on "The Tattooed Torah" Premiering in March

    An entire generation of families has shared Marvell Ginsburg's book, The Tattooed Torah. Now the beloved story will be introduced to the next generation in an animated short film premiering at the Chicago Jewish Film Festival on March 8. 

    The illustrated book tells the true story of the rescue and restoration of a small Torah from Brno, Czechoslovakia. Told from a young boy's perspective, The Tattooed Torah teaches the Holocaust not only as a period of destruction but also as an opportunity for redemption. The film is narrated by Ed Asner. The original illustrator created more than 100 new illustrations for the film in the same style as the original book.

    "We are thrilled with how the book adapted so beautifully into the film," says Beth Kopin, the author's daughter, who spearheaded the project in partnership with other family members, as well as the USC Shoah Foundation.

    Candy and costumes are fun for children this time of year, and you too can tap into this energy as an opportunity to learn about Jewish mysticism and folklore. 

    Judaism has a rich history of mysticism and folklore. Think golems, dybbuks, demons, and the like.

    Here are a few of our favorite storybooks that feature (non-scary) spirits and creatures:
