Kaddish for Grandpa in Jesus' Name, AmenBook - 2004
Five-year-old Emily tries to understand her grandfather's death by exploring the Christian and Jewish rituals that her family practices during and after his funeral. "When I was new, my grandpa was very old." When Emily was two, her grandpa sang songs to her. When she was four, he read her stories. When Emily was five, her beloved grandfather dies. Her family decides to remember him in two ways; with a Christian funeral, because Grandpa was a Christian, and a Jewish service, because Emily's family is Jewish. Both ways are beautiful. But Emily finds a way of remembering her grandpa that is just as beautiful and meaningful...and that's all her own. In this tender story for all families a young girl learns how to say goodbye to her grandpa without letting go of his memory.
