A night of Hands on Hanukkah
Join our Youth Team as they take you through Hanukkah nights One through Eight. We will then be joined by Erica S. Perl as she tells us about her exciting new book: The Ninth Night of Hanukkah!
A heartwarming picture book with a fresh twist on a Hanukkah celebration: celebrating a ninth night with new neighbors and friends
It's Hanukkah, and Max and Rachel are excited to light the menorah in their family's new apartment. But, unfortunately, their Hanukkah box is missing. So now they have no menorah, candles, dreidels, or, well, anything Luckily, their neighbors are happy to help, offering thoughtful and often humorous stand-in items each night. And then, just as Hanukkah is about to end, Max and Rachel, inspired by the shamash ("helper") candle, have a brilliant idea: they're going to celebrate the Ninth Night of Hanukkah as a way to say thanks to everyone who's helped them
This book is not only a heartwarming and fun story, it's also an invitation to join in a beautiful new Hanukkah tradition.
To purchase a copy of the book and support your local book store please visit The Twig.
