Scribe, ut possis cum voles dicere: dices cum velle debebis (Pl. Ep. 6.29)

Religious advertising:

  1. A children's book: "A Tabernacle of Peace - the commandment of pilgrimage in Sukkot (Tabernacles). A family makes a pilgrimage in the time of the Third Temple (in a train that was scanned in advance for impurities), brings its offerings and participates in the feasts of Beit-Hashoeva."
  2. Health insurance: "Saying all of Book of Psalms all the day in your right. 'Forever shall a man put a prayer before a calamity' (Sanhedrin 44b)"

N.B.: Not all religious children read such books; Psalms are usually not the only thing that practicing Jews use as medicine.
