When a Rabbi Writes a Potty-Training Book

Posted by Kar-Ben Editors on 8/7/2018 to Meet a Kar-Ben Author
Rabbi Kerry Olitzky has held many leadership positions in Jewish organizations.

He has written over 70 books and hundreds of articles

Yet, despite his many accomplishments, Rabbi Olitzky says that his latest project might be the most exciting of his career so far: writing a potty-training book with a Jewish bent. Where's the Potty On This Ark? is a whimsical retelling of the Noah's ark story.

This book is set in ancient Egypt.

Let me set the scene for you- a marvelous boy filled with curiosity and optimism is enamored by every single thing that catches his eye, he finds beauty in all things. This boy, Bezalel, turns out to be, among other Israelites, a slave.

However, his genuine curiosity and appreciating for all things- mostly forgotten- is refreshing. His clinginess to his ‘beautiful things box’ definitely hits home.

To read, the mind must make meaning from symbols. The letter “A” represents a particular sound. That sound combines with other sounds to become a word. The process is not easy, and for many children, reading must be broken down into discrete parts before it can be mastered.
