BOSTON – Sparkling stars and the light of the full harvest moon comfort a young boy and his older sister as they fall asleep in their family sukkah.

That’s a scene in “Night Lights,” an endearing new illustrated children’s book by Barbara Diamond Goldin, a Jewish children’s book author.

It’s one of this year’s new books for kids to usher in the Jewish new year at a time when holiday traditions are being upended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
