Do you know about the Jewish tradition of Tzedakah?  This enchanting and inspiring book will tell you all about it.

Dalia is a young girl whose teacher encourages her to start a little fund in a box and her fellow students are intrigued by what their contributions could create.  Dalia shares her ideas with her younger brother who doesn’t want to be left out of the fun.  And when it’s all said and done, there’s an amazing party that takes care of someone special in their community changes her life!

Although this is a book is about a specific, beautiful tradition of Judaism, it is a wonderful books for people of any faith as it delves into up the topic of giving, sharing with others and good deeds.  It’s a great book for talking to kids about empathy, compassion and how meaningful it can be to express love for humanity and community.
