"a groundbreaking new volume that every Jewish home should have.

Taking Hanukkah beyond its conventional celebration as a perfunctory lighting of candles and an excuse for exchanging gifts, it gives families stimulating resources and a host of ideas for thinking about the values of the holiday.
In addition, the book is fun for all ages
and a delight to use."

— Barry W. Holtz, Associate Professor of Jewish Education
Jewish Theological Seminary of America

This book proposes a set of readings and activities, different for each night, for the home celebration of Hanukkah. The whole thing is designed to take about half an hour — about as long as the candles burn. Your Hanukkah will never be the same.
