Lights in the Night by Chris Barash
Illustrator: Maya Shleifer
In this charming picture book for young children, the magic of Shabbat is celebrated through light.
As the sun goes down on a Friday evening and darkness descends, different sources of light welcome in the Sabbath: candles, lanterns, the moon and stars, fireflies, nightlights and then the next morning, the sunrise.
Told in gently rhythmic rhyming couplets and beautifully illustrated throughout, this is an enchanting exploration of light and dark, and a journey through the various rituals and delights of Shabbat.
