Description

Torah stories, for today’s kids

An Angel Called Truth offers short, engaging stories related to the weekly Torah portion written for kids 10 to 13. These new midrashic tales by Rabbi Jeremy Gordon and Emma Parlons are matched with breathtaking artwork by Pete Williamson.

Readers meet a vibrant cast of characters, primarily children—though with an occasional angel, as in the title story—who bring a new twist to each week’s Torah portion and to each Jewish holiday.

An Angel Called Truth is designed to captivate pre-teens with its relatable characters and stories, bridging the gap between ancient wisdom and the lives of young readers today.

Every story is told from the perspective of young people, whether they feature in the biblical narrative, classic Rabbinic commentary, or have been specially crafted for this book. (Notes in the back provide references to the specific passage of midrash or Talmud that inspired the story.)

Each story also includes discussion questions to connect the “back then” of the stories to the “right now” lives of today’s kids, making An Angel Called Truth the perfect companion for Shabbat table conversations or Hebrew school discussions.
