About this title


When Mitch decides to live at a yeshiva in Jerusalem, everyone back home thinks he has been brainwashed, but since Mitch has been studying the Torah and observing the Jewish laws, he has felt more a peace than ever before, in a richly textured novel that contrasts the religious and secular worlds.

About the Author:

Sonia Levitin is the author of more than thirty books for young readers. She is perhaps best known for her fiction on Jewish themes, such as Journey to America, Silver Days, and Annie's Promise, all of which came out of her personal experience as a refugee from Nazi Germany. Journey to America and another novel, The Return, won the National Jewish Book Award. Her novelization of the Exodus story, Escape from Egypt, was named an ALA Best Book for Young Adults, a Booklist "Editor's Choice," and a Voice of Youth Advocate's Outstanding Book for 1994.

The Singing Mountain combines Ms. Levitin's fascination with family dynamics and her love of Israel. She says, "Israel is a symbol, a hope, as well as a place to visit and, like Carlie and Mitch, to grow. When I walk in Israel, I can feel the vibration of history all around me; I hear echoes of thousands of years of prayers for peace. I catch a glimpse of the promise that sometime -- maybe soon -- this world will be repaired."
