Not only did I love this little book, but the post reminds me how much difference a year makes in the life of an early reader/writer.

Yep, those are the moments that make it a little easier to write the check.
Here was one of those moments for me:

My conclusion:
“Abraham Joshua Heschel famously said that Jews build cathedrals in time where other religions build cathedrals in space. To that I would like to add that Jewish day school programs nurture souls who will feel at home in their Judaism, not just in a particular synagogue, community or movement.”

Awww!!
I sure wish our synagogue had something appropriate for 3 year old boys. Isn’t there a running around oustide/playing with trains form of tefillah? ;)
