I'm always happy to share good news. My illustrator friend Marc Lumer is excited to announce his new book,
Hashem is Truly Everywhere
Written by Chani Altein and illustrated by Marc Lumer published by Hachai.
Sometimes children picture Hashem as a distant Figure, living in the heavens or the sky. Yet, one of the most basic concepts in Judaism is the recognition of Hashem as the Creator of everything, the Original cause and source of all, and a Presence in every aspect of His creation.
In this eye-popping picture book, a curious little boy asks his friend where Hashem can be found. As they explore together in an adventure that takes them from the sky, to the sea and then to outer space, they discover that:
High and low, dark and light,
Near and far, day and night,
In and out, here and there,
Hashem is truly everywhere!
Congrats to Marc and Chani!
