Every year as a fundraiser, our temple does a book fair.  As a way to get more kids and teenagers in, someone on the committee asked me if I knew of any Jewish authors or any books with Jewish characters in it.  One that we're definitely using is City of Bones by Cassandra Clare, because she is Jewish and the main character's best friend is Jewish.  I figured since I have PBS as a resource I might as well use all your brains as well.  If anyone knows of any books that fit, please please please let me know.  And thanks in advance!
