I did not write this book to answer the question in the title myself. Countless parents have difficulty talking to children about Judaism, because they are full of unanswered questions themselves. In most families, this is further complicated by the presence of multiple religious traditions. Children’s curious questions about God, faith and religion are an added challenge for parents. My approach will generally only be acceptable for those with a liberal attitude to Judaism; therefore I recommend this book primarily for readers of such disposition.
This book has been selected to be among the Best Jewish Books in 2010 by Rabbi Hirschfield on Huffingtonpost.
Hello, God! is an interactive siddur that combines the style of a prayer book, diary and activity book. In contrast with most children siddurs it does not follow the daily routine and holiday rituals of an observant child and the synagogue service, either – which are often unfamiliar for young readers. Hello, God! helps children to understand the notion of praying and to connect themselves emotionally to the ancient texts. This siddur’ goal is not to provide a reason to pray for but to offer a source for occasions when children might feel the inspiration to talk to God - in happy, special or difficult moments.
For her sixth birthday, Rebecca’s grandpa gives her a photo album in which family stories come to life. He selects images where family members can be seen with some aspects of the Judaism that makes up an important part of their lives. The photographs candidly reveal the expression of Jewish identity in the life of a modern family that nevertheless values its traditions. The book offers parents and grandparents a great opportunity for starting conversations with their children and grandchildren about their Judaism, the past and present.
41 Hebrew songs for all the Jewish holidays on the CD disc, with their phonetic lyrics and short explanation, in the fully illustrated book. You will find the most popular song on the disc like Mah nishtana, Sevivon sov, sov, sov, Maoz tzur, Halleluyah and many others. Children will be able to sing along with the beautiful voice of the Bim Bam children choir.
