This week is Israel National Hebrew Book Week. Books are being sold on the streets of Israeli cities. Why do we love books so much? Our connection to books stems from our connection with the Torah. We are, after all, the People of the Book. Plus, interviews with Esther Heller, editor in chief of Targum Press, and Sarah Shapiro, Jewish author and writing teacher.
