The Always Prayer Shawl by: Sheldon Oberman

The Always Prayer Shawl
Sheldon Oberman

Boyd Mills Press

ISBN 9781590783320

This was a moving Jewish Story. It is an amazing picture book about the changes and staying the same that is life in the Jewish world view. It is the story of a family prayer shawl that gets passed down from generation to generation, from grandfather to grandson.

It is a powerful book about tradition, and family and the power of blessing and the traditional sense of inheritance.

(First written as Journal Reading Notes in 1999.)
