The Sefer Torah Parade is the story of a girl who is certainly not little anymore. She is very excited to attend the completion of a Torah Scroll. Mommy helps her dress in her best clothes, she watches the last letters written on the scroll with a quill pen, and then the music truck pulls up! Flags, torches with real fire, a policeman – there’s no end to the excitement. At the end of the day, Daddy carries the sleepy girl home.
“In Charge at the Shabbos Table” explores the behavior of children at the weekly Sabbath dinner table. Everyone wants to sit next to Mommy and Daddy. No one wants to help serve or clear the table. Insisting that the children stop fighting with each other and stop arguing with the parents does not work. Time for strategy!
