Chik Chak Shabbat

By Mara Rockliff
Illustrated by Kyrsten Brooker

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

When Goldie Simcha doesn’t 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 can’t make cholent in a hurry, right away, chik chak! But it just isn’t 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 Goldie’s sharing spirit alive.

  • New picture book from Golden Kite Award Winning author Mara Rockliff.
  • A heart-warming tale that celebrates urban multicultural communities and the sharing of diverse traditions.
  • Includes a cholent recipe.
