Shabbos in the Chofetz Chaim's Home


You can't go wrong with good stories — and you can never get enough of them! That is an old but familiar story to anyone who has ever wanted an enjoyable read or needed something to enliven the Shabbos table or add spice to a conversation or speech. Here is a collection of stories that have stood the test of time — and the much more difficult feat of keeping the interest of listeners, especially young ones.

The stories in this book come from classic and contemporary sources, and the author knows how to tell them. Needless to say, a story is like good food: The presentation is half the pleasure. The finest ingredients without spice, slapped down on an unattractive setting, will be less than appetizing. So, too, a good story. The telling is all important. This author knows it and she knows how a story should be told. That's just one reason this book is enjoyable. The other reasons are that the stories are authentic, interesting in themselves, have a worthwhile message, and - last but not least - are arranged according to the weekly Sidrah, so that you have them when you need them most.

Whether you want a fine reading experience or you want to transmit valuable lessons painlessly and unobtrusively, this is a book to have in hand.
