The Key Under the Pillow - Honoring ParentsSuggested for ages 3-6. This new book is a beautifully illustrated retelling of a famous story from the Talmud, about a Noahide in ancient Israel who exemplified the ideal of honoring parents. Dama the gem merchant passed up the opportunity to earn a fortune, when it would have required that he compromise in his respect for his father. Although the Seven Noahide Commandments do not include a commandment to honor parents, starting from the children of Adam and Hava all peoples of the world distinguished themselves by accepting this as a righteous obligation. As a message to all mankind, G-d rewarded Dama in a surprising and miraculous way!
