image A song, sung by Moshe, at the end of his life:

Listen, O heavens!  Listen, O earth!
Hashem is the one who gave you your birth;
Hashem is the Rock, He is great, strong and pure,
Cling to Him now and your lives are secure.

Though it may seem that He will destroy,
Remember forever, you are His great joy;
Our Father He is and our Master will be,
So take heed of His words most seriously.

If you forget now the promise He made,
Your elders beseech, for His message betrayed;
As no special deeds or accomplishments came
To you before he bestowed His great name.

He swept you aloft with His presence so regal,
Carrying you higher, borne as an eagle;
Gave you the best of all the land’s things,
All the sweet foods and the riches it brings.

And yet you forgot Him and turned from His ways,
As He hid His face for a lifetime of days.
Terrible punishments soon would ensue,
Rivals invading as famine wind blew;

Enemies crowing, rejoicing our doom,
Raising their lies over Israel’s tomb.
If they were wise, they would think of their fate,
Remember Hashem, long before it’s too late.

For their destiny, too, will arrive before long,
The victorious end at the end of this song;
Vengeance is His and to Him all the earth,
Hashem’s is the healing that brings our rebirth.

Are Jews an "underrepresented community" in children’s publishing?

I applied for a writing award yesterday. I'm not going to get it, but that's not what I wanted to share with you. Here's what I wanted to share. This box:   I stared at this box for a long, long time. And then I decided not to check it. Even though I believe people like me truly are underrepresented, we probably wouldn’t fit the definition in other people's minds. Why? Well, because we're European. Because we are white. Because as everybody knows, Jews control the media. (do we???) If anything, some people say, Jews are over -represented in publishing. And yet. Some definitions are careful not to include people like me. Like this random definition from the State of California which defines underrepresented for some very specific business purposes as: "an individual who self-identifies as Black, African American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native, or who self-identi
