"Finally, Jewish kids' books are starting to reflect the diversity of Judaism"


I am pleased to announce that I have written an article for The Forward, the famous Jewish newspaper founded in 1897 and originally published in Yiddish. It is entitled "Finally, Jewish kids' books are starting to reflect the diversity of Judaism." I referenced Dr. Rudine Sims Bishop's well-known metaphor about "mirrors, windows, and sliding glass doors" to explain that all children need to read Jewish books that reflect the diversity of the Jewish community, and I shared a few personal favorite titles.


For those of you who would like to learn about additional titles, please take a look at my growing Diverse Jewish Kidlit bibliography.
