Join the JCC Denver for a virtual Q&A and read aloud with author, Sigal Samuel, about her book 'Osnat And Her Dove.’ Then, families can participate in activities for kids inspired by the books' messages of reaching your dreams, and inspiring others to be the best version of themselves.  Activity kits inspired by the book are available for pre-purchase.


Osnat was born five hundred years ago – at a time when almost everyone believed in miracles. But very few believed that girls should learn to read. Yet Osnat's father was a great scholar whose house was filled with books. And she convinced him to teach her. Then she in turn grew up to teach others, becoming a wise scholar in her own right, the world's first female rabbi! Some say Osnat performed miracles – like healing a dove who had been shot by a hunter! Or saving a congregation from fire! But perhaps her greatest feat was to be a light of inspiration for other girls and boys; to show that any person who can learn might find a path that none have walked before.
