A colorful, fun-to-read introduction that explains the ways and whys of
Jewish worship, faith, and religious life.
What You Will See Inside a Synagogue  will:
• Satisfy kids’ curiosity about what goes on in synagogues attended by their friends, broadening awareness of other faiths at an important age when opinions and prejudices can first form.
• Provide Jewish children with a deeper understanding of the practices of their own religious tradition.
• Give children the opportunity to ask questions, making them more active participants.
Colorful full-page photographs set the scene for concise but informative descriptions of what is happening, the objects used, the clergy and laypeople who have specific roles, the spiritual intent of the believers, and more.
The What You Will See Inside… series is designed to show children ages 6–10 the Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How of traditional houses of worship, liturgical celebrations, and rituals of different world faiths, empowering them to respect and understand their own religious traditions—and those of their friends and neighbors.
“Lucid text … spacious, attractive design welcomes the reader into both the spiritual and cultural world of Judaism.  For all multicultural and Judaic collections.”
Kirkus Reviews
“A visual, informative introduction to the traditions of Jewish faith and worship….”
