Sabbag told us, “I wrote Shira, Detective - Chametz Detective when after telling the students about the custom of cleaning out the chametz, one of my students went home and became the chametz detective with her parents. I hope that all my Shira stories will help families celebrate Judaism together.”
About Challah, a Chewish Guide to Torah: “After a friend posted a picture of her challah shaped as a menorah, I was inspired to create challahs that represented some part of each Torah portion. I hope this book will motivate families to the weekly practice of not just making challah, but making challah with a taste of Torah,” said author Susan Abramson.
