Jewish Values: Lech Lecha: The Journey of Abraham and Sarah

Publication Year: 
Number of Pages: 
32 p.
The story is written in Hebrew and English, half a page each, alongside very handsome full page illustrations. The text is short, a few lines to a page. The Hebrew, on the top, is taken from the Bible, and the English, underneath the Hebrew, is a simple translation. The Hebrew is printed with vowel points. At the end of the book, there is a literal translation in English and a glossary that lists alphabetically all of the Hebrew words used, with their English translation and transliteration. The introduction explains the difference between the title, which parallels the weekly Torah reading, and the content of the book that also includes parts of Parashat Vayera and tells about the significance of names and about the birth of Isaac. Like the other books in this series, this is an excellent choice for bi-lingual programs.
