Description


The Big Festival of Lights: Stories and Plays for Hanukkah is a collection of short fiction and plays by nine prominent Jewish figures of the early twentieth-century meant to capture and celebrate the spirit of the holiday.

In, "By the Light of Hanukkah: A Play in Three Acts," by Solomon Fineberg, a young man named David awaits to hear about his admittance to the American Rabbinical College while his blind sister Esther quietly wishes to regain her sight. Elma Levinger's "The Unlighted Menorah: A Hanukkah Fantasy," tells the story of Abraham Mendelssohn, an old man at the end of his life grappling with his decision to assimilate his son into American culture; and "Hanukkah Evening" is a charming story of a family waiting for their father to return home to light the first candle on the Menorah.

With these and eight additional stories, The Big Festival of Lights: Stories and Plays for Hanukkah is a collection that features tales of families, tradition and culture pride for readers young and old. Professionally typeset with a beautifully designed cover, this edition of The Big Festival of Lights: Stories and Plays for Hanukkah is a celebration of Jewish culture reimagined for a modern audience.
