When I come back from visiting family in Canada I bring my grade six pupils mini gingerbread men from Grodzinsky's bakery. I teach them the Gingerbread Man story and then surprise them with the cookies. You cannot imagine the joy this brings them! If Rabbi Pliskin could let me know how to reach him I would like to tell him more. Happy Chanukah!!!!

I loved this and I love your book. Each chapter is short but there is so much in them to really ponder when a person wants to change their outlook on things... to really become a more spiritual person. Joy cookies this year are macaroons (homemade) and spelling the word JOY. They're easy, no cookie cutter is necessary because some of the JOY is making the letters silly and fun with clean hands and heart.
