The Rise of Rabbi RocketPower

In the fall of 2001, when Rabbi Susan Abramson's son Aaron was in the first grade, the world seemed to be a particularly vulnerable and scary place. She began to evolve Rabbi Rocketpower stories to focus his attention on caring and positive role models and to show him that his family had the power to overcome difficult situations. She saw how much he loved to read funny books, yet there was nothing in Jewish children's literature which grabbed his attention in the same way. She also thought it would be important to feature a female rabbi superhero for children to admire. So together they came up with Jewish stories which made the members of their family into super heroes, saving each Jewish holiday from those who threatened to disrupt it.
