Jewish Values: And God Cried, Too: A Kid's Book of Healing and Hope
Number of Pages:
Similar to several other books by Rabbi Gellman but specifically situated in the events of Sept. 11,2002, this is a wholesome book of consolation and advice for younger children, their teachers, rabbis, and parents. Each chapter is based on a theological subject - evil, justice, anger at G-d, for example - and presented as a fictional vignette. Most of the values expressed are thoroughly Jewish but the book is addressed to readers of all creeds, including those who do not believe in G-d at all.
