Shmendrick and the Croc

Barbara Jackson
Jonathan Wittenberg

Shmendrick and his friend the Croc travel through the Jewish year, sharing in its joy, searching for its meaning and having small adventures along the way. They always try to do the right thing, but Shmendrick's love of chocolate is sometimes a distraction.

Rabbi Jonathan Wittenberg and illustrator Barbara Jackson told these warm and funny stories, accompanied by the original toy Shmendrick and Croc.

Barbara Jackson is a graduate of St Martin’s School of Art and works in the disciplines of painting and printmaking. She has exhibited extensively, including three times at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

Jonathan Wittenberg is rabbi of the New North London Synagogue. His broad-ranging interests include spirituality, literature, pastoral care, interfaith relations and nature.
