A window to the world has been opened to Elisheva, the young kalla, right after her marriage. Exposed to a new reality, she learns how to judge everyone favorably and to examine every occurrence independently from various aspects.
A fascinating book full of humor, geared for rewarding reading for young girls and women of all ages.
Several months after her wedding, Elisheva discovers that her own family is about to expand at a very rapid pace. While keeping the news very secret, she makes the acquaintance of the neighbors in her building and tells the story of each of these new friends. There is Malky, the daughter of the contractor who built it and her special daughter; Debby the pharmacist, a baalas teshuva looking for a shidduch; Rivka the kindergarten teacher who speaks softly, choosing her words carefully. Then there is Bracha, mother of four boys who is an meticulous homemaker and expert challa baker, among her other culinary skills; Goldy, whose sense of humor sets everyone rolling and whose effervescent nature, which matches her red hair and her children, makes her a favorite by everyone. Not to forget Miri Soferovitch, the exemplary teacher who, in her Dimona past, was called by the unmistakably Sefardi name of Buzaglo and has made a fresh start here as an `Ashkenazi’; Avigail, the eishes chayil, who agreed to reveal her deep dark secret to Elisheva; Rebbetzin Gitta, the unapproachable but acclaimed exemplary rebbetzin; Morah Esther who is raising a family of tzaddikim; Mazal the Wonder Baker and Chef, as the daily aromas which fill the building testify; Elisheva’s rich cousin Nechami who willingly agrees to share her apartment by having it duly split into two… All outstanding women in their own right who have agreed to share their insights on life with Elisheva, who is determined to write her first book about this.
Oh, we forgot all about the triplets…
