Description: We don’t often think about the Holocaust in terms of hope and resilience, but Philadelphia author Sharon Sorokin encourages us to do just that in her book, Ziggy’s Potato.
Ziggy’s Potato is a gentle introduction to the Holocaust for children aged 8 and up, and it is based on a true story. The book’s gorgeous illustrations by Helen Cann demand closer inspection, as they add to the story’s simple and elegant narration.
Join us on Zoom for what promises to be a fascinating lunch break in commemoration of Yom Hashoah.

Accommodations: Thanks to a generous grant from the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, we are able to provide accommodations for any child or family member with a disability to attend jkidphilly events. If you need an accommodation such as an ASL interpreter, a sensory toolbox, or even behavior support for your child, or if you have questions about the accessibility of any program or venue, please note so on our form or contact us. In most cases, our staff will need two weeks’ notice to provide accommodations, but we will do our best to meet your needs on any timeframe.
For our in-person events, we’ll work together to take care of our community.
