Jewish Values: Jacob's Travels

Publisher: 
Publication Year: 
2006
Number of Pages: 
28 p.
Note: 
The newest entry in the publisher's series of stories from the Book of Bereishit continues the success of earlier volumes of Bible stories for young readers. The story begins just after Jacob has stolen Esau's birthright and is taken from Genesis:28-32. The format consists of the biblical text in Hebrew with a faithful, although not literal, English translation. The literal translation of the Hebrew follows at the end of the story, along with a glossary of Hebrew words. Competence in Hebrew is not assumed; the juxtaposition of the dual language text enables reading in either language. Handsome color illustrations complete another excellent book.
