A synagogue just like home / Mcginty, Alice B.

Rabbi Ruben loves his synagogue. But he doesn't love the creaking floorboard, leaking sink, or drafty windows. Surely, he thinks, he can fix it up so it feels cared for, like a happy home! But Rabbi Ruben doesn't know much about home repair, so when his creative fixes -- challah dough plugging a drippy faucet, tablecloths blocking a window draft -- make things humorously worse, it'll take his whole congregation banding together to remind him what really makes a place feel like a happy home.
