Laurel Snyder, Baxter, the Pig Who Wanted to Be Kosher
Sponsor Edlavitch JCC of Washington DC
Type of Event Arts & Culture
Description Celebrate this delightful story about Baxter, a pig who wants to become kosher so he can join a Shabbat dinner. The event includes story time by the author, crafts, songs and a take-home booklet with clever ideas to bring the messages of welcome, community and warmth into your home for Shabbat and other evenings. "Snyder and Goldin go together like matzo balls and chicken soup: the bright, daffy prose and ebulliently goofy cartoon and photo collages will persuade readers that they don't have to be Jewish to enjoy Baxter's spiritual journey—which ends, happily enough, at the Shabbat table of a kindly rabbi. Yes, of course he's a guest. What did you think?" –Publishers Weekly, starred review
