Title: I Always, ALWAYS Get My Way

Title: I Always, ALWAYS Get My Way


Author: Thad Kresnesky


Illustrator: David Parkins


Publisher: Flashlight Press


 


 


   This review was written with laughter and deep appreciation for the author’s keen insight. Perhaps it takes a military veteran of a father such as Thad Kresnesky to teach civilians how to deal with tiny terrorists, even if they’re “only three” and cute as can be.

 

   Parents with a sense of humor will adore the moral of this story as they share it with tots who cleverly know how to manipulate the adults in their life.

 

   The star of the story is Emmy, a rollercoaster of childish fun who ignores her brakes. Her constant excuse for getting out of trouble is “That I’m only three.”

 

   After a few disasters too many, always at the expense of relatives under orders to bear with her alleged learning curve, Emmy’s siblings and parents soon realize that she’s wrapped them around her chubby fingers and cunning ways. They hoist the child on her own petard to ponder the meaning of “behavior.” Emmy then muses, “I sadly closed my bedroom door. I may be here until I’m four.”

 

   The upbeat rhyming lines and gutsy adventures will leave you laughing. The pictures teach as much as the text. The whole family can identify with characters in the story.

 

   I Always, ALWAYS Get My Way is a chance for children to safely recognize themselves as more clever than they’re often taken for. Adults will have a terrific tool for putting their progeny on notice to use better manners and a sense of propriety.

 

   Beleaguered parents will adore this moral lesson of this hilariously illustrated story. Share lap-sized hardcover I Always, ALWAYS Get My Way with your children again and again. Get the whole family on the same page.

Jews, wake up! Stop educating the world and start educating yourselves.

Hebrew Academy students learn the ABC’s of safety during Hebrew Academy’s recent Safety Kid Program.

The lessons conform to the sensitivities and needs of the Orthodox community…

Women learn in honor of first yahrzeit of Rebbetzin Chasia Kudan, a”h.

The program took on special significance as it marked not only the first anniversary of Rebbetzin Kudan’s levayah but also the 27th yahrzeit of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson, a”h.

It captures the love of the Jewish soul as only Shlomo Hamelech could portray it – and as only Rabbi Miller could explain it.

Erudite and academic, drawing from ancient and modern sources, the book can be discussed at the Shabbos table as well as in kollel.

I’m here to sit next to you and help you through this Purim with three almost-too-easy mishloach manot ideas, all made with cost-conscious paper bags.

Kids want to be like their friends, and they want to give and get “normal” mishloach manos stocked with store-bought treats.

Whenever he did anything loving for me, I made a big deal about it.

“OMG, it’s so cute, you’re so cute, everything is so cute.”

A program that started with a handful of volunteers has grown exponentially to include students from a wider array of backgrounds.

Tutor. Counselor. The doctor too,
Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with you.

Recently, due to age and wear, programming and NCSY events were moved into portable units outside the youth building.

Tehilim 71:9 reads “Do not cast me off in the time of old age; Do not forsake me when my strength fails.” The message is apropos to the endeavor – wonder and spirituality ruled as respect for aging heroes of the Shoah increased among Leo Baeck students.

Title: The Kosher Grapevine: Exploring the World of Wine
Author: Irving Langer
Publisher: Gefen

Breathe deeply. You’ll need maximum physical and spiritual power to absorb the uplifting lessons in this book. Page 249 explains why some Jews are praised as “fish on dry land,” a phrase that describes Moshe Rabeinu. Am Yisrael began to appreciate his depth of character at kriat Yam Suf, realizing that “he lived in the revealed world as though he were in the concealed world.”

Author Irving Langer provides his own look at wine-making as well as the nature of the storage barrels used to age wines for taste perfection. He intersperses the book with Jewish historical facts and figures, a few jokes and photographs, and advice on how to pair wines with specific foods.

Unlike formulaic biographies from popular publishing houses in the Orthodox Jewish world, Beyond Politics is not predictable. The vignettes of individual men and women who trekked through Ethiopia and Sudan, flew in from Austria, India, and Algeria, or were born on Israeli soil are gritty, adventurous, and heartwarming.

Title: The Koren Ethiopian Haggada Journey to Freedom: Celebrating Ethiopian Jewish History, Traditions & Customs
Editor: Rabbi Menachem Waldman
Publisher: Koren Publishing

Most of the No-Potato Passover recipes are as casual as the title’s spelling: some include only six ingredients and limited prep time – half to one full hour. They’re good for heart health and waistlines, too.

The Hebrew-English haggada provides a wealth of photographic evidence of the lives led by Ethiopian Jews. The pottery, the unembellished homes, school, and synagogues, the gaunt Jews in modest clothing and head coverings portray dedication to Torah values despite harsh political and topographical conditions.
