what we remember
“I remember my first drawings of my mother’s face—longish straight nose, clear brown eyes, high-boned cheeks. She was small and slight; her arms were thin and smooth-skinned, her fingers long and thin and delicately boned. Her face was smooth and smelled of soap. I loved her face next to mine when she listened to me recite the Krias Shema before I close my eyes to go to sleep.”-My Name is Asher Lev
note: My Name is Asher Lev by Chaim Potok is our next book for Group Read which starts in September. What is Krias Shema?
