The Book Meshuggenahs group is a resource for the Jewish community, providing and promoting high quality, diverse, Jewish-themed children’s books, educational resources, and opportunities, including two annual free contests for children and adults to share their creativity and good deeds. 

Book Meshuggenah’s Chanukah Contest
It’s time for the 1st Annual Book Meshuggenahs’ Chanukah Contest: Be the Shamash! Just as the helper candle — the shamash — lights the others in the menorah, people can be the shamash by helping others. Please email pictures and a few words about yourself, your kids or your students helping others to thebookmeshuggenahs@gmail.com. Every participant will receive a certificate of thanks for being a shamash. In addition, eight participants will be chosen at random to receive one Book Meshuggenahs book apiece. The contest begins Oct. 1 and ends Dec. 1. We look forward to celebrating our Shamash people on our Be a Shamash page and on social media all through November and December. #tikkunolam #helptheworld
