Stories of the Churban Beis HaMikdash By Genendel Krohn Illustrated by: Tova Katz 8.5"x11" (48 Pages)Ages 4-7, 8-11 Publisher: Feldheim, 2009
A Moving, Vivid Portrayal for Kids to Contemplate and Cherish
The entire Jewish Nation has been mourning the destruction of our holy Temple, the Bais HaMikdash, for thousands of years, but it is difficult to convey this concept to our children. Not any more! With this wonderful, sensitive book, children are treated to dozens of stories about the Temple, giving them a taste of what life was like before it was destroyed.
These stories capture the wonder and woe of Yerushalayim, Jerusalem, as enemy Roman soldiers lay siege to the walls, as the prophets of the time urged the Jews to repent, and as the Bais Hamikdash, finally, was burned.
With captivating pictures and age-appropriate text, this book is both sobering and important. It imparts to children the wonderful treasure we were entrusted with and gives them inspiration to pray for the coming of Moshiach, when we will once again serve Hashem in the Third Bais Hamikdash. A valuable book to read during the Three Weeks, on Tisha B'Av, and all year round.
