When We Left Yerushalayim
The destruction of the Holy Temple has been commemorated by the Sages with the institution of fast days. On these days, we discuss and learn about the various historical events related to the destruction, ensuring that we always remember what we had and what we lost.
Now, children too can have the privilege of learning about these events in language suitable for them. In this masterful collection of stories about the destruction of the Temple, noted author and educator Genendel Krohn has filled an important need. Carefully chosen and sensitively written, each story is beautifully illustrated to help children relate to this critical time period in Jewish history.
This is an invaluable book that will help everyone in the family stay focused on remembering our cherished Temple - on fast days, during the Three Weeks, and throughout the year.
