I Was There In Ancient Jerusalem

Soon it will be Rosh Chodesh Av, a new moon and the beginning of the new Hebrew month of Av. Let's imagine ourselves on the bittersweet last pilgrimage to the ancient Temple in Jerusalem to celebrate. Of course, we only know it's the last because we are time travelers, aware that we are in the time of the three weeks before Tisha B'Av - the day when the Temple was destroyed! We will be there when the walls are breached and we will escape and make our way to the future together.

Always keen for a great kids’ story with reliable adults, three of her favorite middle-grade books are Patina, by Jason Reynolds, Almost Flying, by Jake Maia Arlow, and The Girl Who Drank the Moon, by Kelly Barnhill. She’s also the author of Friends Forever, a Jewish middle-grade time travel novel.
