 Two dinosaurs-one an optimist, the other a pessimist-meet to share a Shabbat meal. As the food is eaten and the evening progresses, can the positive dinosaur, a tovasaurus, convince its pessimist friend, a kvetchasaurus, to see the brighter side of the meal, their time together, and life as a whole?
Co-written by Rabbi Joseph Meszler and his sister, Joelle Reizes, and illustrated by Kris Graves.

 

 

The Misshapen Hamantasch: A Purim Story

Co-written by Rabbi Joseph Meszler and his sister, Joelle Reizes, and illustrated by Kris Graves.
