Named a 2003 Notable Book for Young Readers by The Association of Jewish Libraries
Spring has come to the little town of Chelm and everyone is busy making things clean and fresh for Passover. At Rachel's home, a special gift has arrived: Bubbie from Bialystok has sent along her recipe for Bubbie's Own Matzo Ball Soup. Rachel's mother is thrilled. Maybe the fragrance of the soup will lure Elijah the Prophet to their home and he will bestow good fortune on them.
The soup is indeed wonderful, and soon it draws the neighbors. But none of these everyday folk could possibly be the great prophet. Or could they? As in Rachel Captures the Moon , the solution lies in the hands of a loving child.
