Chik Chak Shabbat

author: Mara Rockliff
illustrator: Kyrsten Brooker

When Goldie Simcha doesnít joyfully throw open her door to welcome everyone in to her apartment for a meal of her famous cholent, her neighbors wonder what could be wrong. Little Lali Omar knocks on the door to 5-A, only to learn that Goldie was feeling too sick on Friday to cook, and everyone knows you canít make cholent in a hurry, right away, chik chak! But it just isnít Shabbat without cholent. What can her neighbors do to save the day? In an uplifting story that warms more than your heart, Chik Chak Shabbat offers a cholent recipe that keeps Goldieís sharing spirit alive.

Celebrate Shabbat, community, and diverse traditions with this lyrical tale, illustrated with a lively and whimsical touch.
