Some mitzvos are done daily, some weekly, and others, once a year. But this inspiring picture book for young children focuses on a mitzvah that can be fulfilled once in a lifetime!
“When I was a baby, so cute and so small,
I got a great gift, the most special of all!
Can you guess what it was?
What could my gift be?”
Each and every Jew is charged with writing a Sefer Torah. It is a mitzvah obligation to this very day, and something that even a young child can accomplish by owning one letter in a Sefer Torah. What an excitement and love of Torah this cultivates! What better way to unite all Jews and to embrace their participation this precious mitzvah? The young brother and sister in the book are so proud of having one holy letter of their own, and a certificate that tells them the Parsha in which their letter is found. Beautiful, action-packed illustrations bring the characters to life!
My Very Own Letter
