ASHLAND — Former Ashland resident Amy Meltzer will read from her new children's book "A Mezuzah on the Door" to children ages 3-7, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 2, at Havurah Shir Hadash, 185 N. Mountain Ave.

Young readers will relate to this heartwarming story of a little boy who moves from an apartment in the city to a house in the suburbs and must adjust to his new surroundings. The Jewish tradition of putting up a mezuzah on the door and the accompanying celebration party help ease his transition to his new home. Colorful collage illustrations by Janice Fried enhance this gentle story. This event is free. Call 488-7716 for more information.
