Why You Inspire Me

from Craig Weisz

Junior Jewish Encyclopedia

Hi, Abba! In your honor and in honor of your brother-in-law and my uncle, Solomon, my kids and I will read the Jr. Jewish Encyclopedia. For those who don’t know, Solomon read the entire Encyclopedia Judaica and celebrated the completion of each volume with a siyyum (completion party) devoted to that letter. I recall that the B volume was celebrated with bubbly beverages and bagels. At the conclusion of reading all the entries for each letter in the Jr. Jewish Encyclopedia, Emmett and Hannah Mathilda are very excited to hold a “letter party” and share what they have learned with their Saba. ┬áBy: Debra Orenstein
