We want to bring vibrant, engaging tales from the Torah to 10-13 year olds. We believe readers at this age will respond most effectively to short tales for each section of the Torah. These tales need to be accompanied by captivating illustrations and guiding questions that connect stories from ‘back then’ to the ‘right now’ lives of our readers.
