Welcoming Elijah

A Passover Tale with a Tail



Celebrated author Lesléa Newman unites a young boy and a stray kitten in a warm, lyrical story about Passover, family, and friendship.

Inside a boy and his family gather around the dinner table for a Passover Seder. Outside, a cat wanders, hungry and alone. Soon it is time for the symbolic Passover custom of opening the door for the Jewish prophet, Elijah, who will one day bring a hopeful message of peace. When the boy opens the door, both he and the cat are in for a remarkable surprise.
