Jewish Values: Bad Stuff in the News: A Guide to Handling the Headlines

Publication Year:

Number of Pages: 
116 p.
Note: 
Inspired by the terrorists attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, this imparts wholesome advice about many of the issues that frighten children (and adults): school violence, natural disasters, catastrophic accidents, child abuse, hate, sports violence, pollution, addiction, sickness and dying, and generational conflict. Each chapter gives some examples of "bad stuff," discusses its sources and motivation, and then provides readers with positive steps that they can take to allay their fears and repair the world. Although not, strictly speaking, of Jewish content, the guide's coverage includes instances of violence against Jews in California, Montana, and Illinois.
