Join author Erica Perl for a reading and discussion of her 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!

 

The book will be available to order from our friends at Longfellow Books at this link:
