Lots of Latkes: A Hanukkah Story

By Sandy Lanton
Rivka Leah invites her friends over to celebrate Hanukkah. She tells them that she will make the latkes, but asks them to bring their menorah and something to share. Each friend plans to bring their specialty: Moshe the milkman plans to bring sour cream, Chana plans to bring applesauce, Avrom the fisherman plans to bring some fish, and Manya the baker plans to bring some jelly donuts. But the morning of the first night of Hanukkah, the mice eat the sugar, the apples have rotted, the fish aren't biting, and the cow kicked over the milk bucket. None of Rivka Leah's friends want to come with nothing, so they come up with a solution that will remind readers about the importance of celebrating together. A copy of Rivka Leah's latke recipe is included.

Hanukkah: The Family Guide to Spiritual Celebration

By Dr. Ron Wolfson
This comprehensive guide to Hanukkah, now in its second edition, will be appreciated by countless Jewish families seeking creative and memorable ways to celebrate the holiday. It opens with Wolfson's nostalgic foreword about Hanukkahs past, recounting how the experience of growing up Jewish in Omaha, Nebraska, helped him to articulate and understand his faith-and how he has sought, through the observance of Hanukkah, to pass on that identity to his children. What follows is a fine and resourceful manual about all aspects of the celebration, including recipes, crafts, gifts, games, prayers, decorations and songs. There are even corny Hanukkah jokes ("oil's well that ends well") and whole chapters on food: "If it is a real Jewish event, it involves food," Wolfson tells us. Especially helpful is a section offering parents suggestions to help their children understand the "December Dilemmas" of Hanukkah and Christmas.

Chanukah in Chelm

By David A. Adler
This rollicking tale stars Mendel, the good-hearted, hard-working, but foolish caretaker of the temple. It is the first night of Chanukah, and Rabbi Nachman asks Mendel to put the menorah on a table by the window. In the closet, the caretaker looks over, under, and around the table, but still doesn't see it. His quest continues with good-natured silliness and a happy ending. Broad humor shines through in both the wry text and visual gags, pushing the traditional foolishness of Chelm further into farce. Dialogue balloons allow the characters to comment on the proceedings. A box is labeled "Imported Air," a bucket says "Cantor's Decanter," and a sign on the carpenter's workshop reads "Tables Are Us." O'Malley's oil wash on pen-and-ink illustrations, filled with amusing figures, rich colors, and beautiful scenery, portray a Chelm that is just the right combination of humor and tradition.
