Jr. Tales: Open-and-Shut Case

“I wish we could just stay outside today.” Adina sighed and fell into step beside Tehila. “It’s stunning weather, and we have to be all cooped up.” Then she remembered something else that was bothering her. “Even when I go home, I have so much work to do! Cleaning! Ugh!”

 

A Stich in Time for Pesach

Shayna

Although you’ve spent a marathon month of scrubbing and scraping, you’re not the only one who’s worked around the clock to ensure that your Seder table sparkles. In the Keter Quality Judaica factory in Kiryat Gat, Israel, many workers with many areas of expertise have been busy cutting and sewing, embroidering and bejeweling so these beautiful Pesach sets — pillowcases, Urchatz towels, afikomen bags, and matzah covers — will sparkle on your tables and chairs.
