Join Hebrew College’s Parenting Through a Jewish Lens on Zoom for a free family story time at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, May 1, with children’s book author Linda Elovitz Marshall.

Marshall will read from two of her books, Shh… Shh… Shabbat and Shalom Bayit and share some kid-friendly art activities related to the books to build peace, joy, and shalom bayit — or domestic harmony — in your home during these complicated times.

“One of my newest books, Shalom Bayit: A Peaceful Home (KarBen, 2020) reminds readers that they can find joy and peace at home, and that every home can be a cozy, restful, safe, and loving place…. I think we all need special places — a fort in the living room, a table covered with a blanket, a closet, a place to hide where no one can see us.” — Linda Elovitz Marshall, Finding Your Sacred Space at Home.

Shalom Bayit on Shh... Shh... Shabbat: Family Storytime with Author Linda Elovitz Marshall

Linda Elovitz Marshall grew up near Boston and raised her four children, a small flock of sheep, lots of zucchinis and countless rabbits in a historic farmhouse overlooking the Hudson River in upstate New York. A graduate of Barnard College of Columbia University, she has, in addition to writing and farming, taught early childhood and parenting education, and owned a bookstore. In addition to “Shalom Bayit: A Peaceful Home,” her newest books are “Saving the Countryside: The Story of Beatrix Potter and Peter Rabbit” (Little Bee Books, January 2020) and “Have You Ever Zeen a Ziz?” (Albert Whitman & Co, April 2020), and she has two books coming out later this year: “The Polio Pioneer: The Story Of Dr. Jonas Salk and the Polio Vaccine” (Knopf, August 2020) and “Anne Frank: The Girl Heard Around the World” (Scholastic, September 2020). Her books have been translated into French, Spanish, Russian, Italian, and Korean. She is the daughter of Elaine Elovitz and the late Gerald Elovitz, aka Jerry Ellis of New England’s “Messiest Department Store” — the now-defunct Building #19 (whose story she wrote in “Good Stuff Cheap: The Story of Jerry Ellis and Building #19”) Read more about Linda and her books at
