What Do Feathers and Gossip Have in Common?


In preparation for our upcoming visiting author Debbie Waldman, her beautifully illustrated book, A Sack Full of Feathers, was read to each class in the Lower School.  In this adaptation of an old Jewish folktale, a young boy learns a valuable lesson about lashon ha’ra (gossip). The book was read and discussed during Judaic Studies and will be followed up by a writing activity in General Studies classes. Students and faculty alike are looking forward to Ms. Waldman’s visit.
