Giggle and groan as Rabbi Ruben works to repair his aging synagogue in creative, if not wholly effective, ways—patching leaks with challah dough and creaking loudly through a library while a woman studies the Torah, for example. This lighthearted tale with dazzling, diverse illustrations winks to its audience (“I’ll be quiet as a deli on Yom Kippur”) as it delivers a quiet message about the value of working together to make our shared spaces bright.
