A Story for the Jewish New Year
retold by Eric A. Kimmel
illustrated by Jon J. Muth
Gershon was not always the best person he could be. True, the mistakes he made were common, ordinary things: a broken promise, a temper lost for no reason, a little untruth told here and there. But unlike most people, he never regretted them or asked anyone's forgiveness. Why should he? He merely swept them up and tossed them in the cellar. Then, every year on Rosh Hashanah, he would put them into a sack and cast them out to sea. Little did he know that his thoughtless behavior would come back to haunt him. Was there still a chance for him to change?
