Don't Let It Go

I don't think I've ever been chewed out for one of my reviews before. Though admittedly, it's fairly rare for me to write one in which I say absolutely nothing positive about a book. That was not really intentional, and I should probably go back and try to correct it at some point.

Ilene Richards proudly informs me that Let My People Go has sold out. This surprises me not at all. The stuff parents will do and buy in in an attempt to make Judaism "fun" for their kids... well, I can't judge them for it, because I know myself how difficult it is to maintain interest in Judaism in a largely Christian-oriented world. But no matter how well meaning the motivation is, it doesn't make things like stuffed Torahs any less bizarre or tacky.
