Jewish Values: Waiting Wall, The

Note: 
The premise of this book, told from the point of view of a young boy and girl visiting the Western Wall for the first time, is that the “kosel” in Jerusalem is waiting for the Messiah to come, and that each of us has the potential to bring this about through prayer and kindness. The illustrations are beguiling and the brief story—a kind of meditation on the Wall—is especially but not exclusively appropriate for children from observant families. All the characters are dressed in an Orthodox manner; men and women are shown in traditional gender-segregated roles. There is a brief glossary of Hebrew terms.
