Publisher's Summary

Celebrate the holiday of Chanukah with eight original short stories written and read by Jewish storyteller Scott Hilton Davis. Enjoy a fun-filled journey to Oykvetchnik, the tiny shtetl town in Eastern Europe where people complain a lot.

Meet Chaim the Chanukiyah, the nine-branched menorah, who feels out of place in his new home; Myzeleh the Mouse who helps a poor orphan boy find his true calling; Pinchas ben Mordechai who survives 25 years in the Tsar's army; Reb Shimon the Shammes who has lost the synagogue's big menorah; Channele the Rabbi's daughter who finally meets her besherter (her soul mate); and the kind-hearted Dovidl who fears the town's beggar may be the rightful owner of his family's new pawnshop menorah.

These sweet and heartwarming Chanukah stories will fill your heart with the light of Jewish history, culture, and values. As the candles burn low, the dreidels start spinning, and the smells of freshly fried latkes waft through the house, spend a few minutes remembering the lives of our ancestors and how they joyfully celebrated their Jewish traditions.

Winner of a 2018 Silver Ben Franklin Award from the Independent Book Publishers Association and a 2018 Bronze IPPY Medal from the Independent Publisher Awards!
