Description: Gershon sometimes made mistakes. But unlike most people, he never regretted them or asked anyone's forgiveness. Why should he? He merely swept them up and tossed them into the cellar. Then, every year on Rosh Hashanah, he would put them into a sack and cast them out to sea. Little did he know that his thoughtless behavior would come back to haunt him. Was there still a chance for him to change?
Eric A. Kimmel's skillfully crafted text and Jon J. Muth's sensitive, expressive watercolors capture all the drama and wonder of this traditional Hasidic legend. Here is an unforgettable story -- for the Jewish New Year, or any time of year -- about facing our own monsters and beginning anew.
