Eight stories, each expanding on one of Hanukkah's themes:these stories are drawn from Jewish folklore as well as the Bible and Talmud to weave tales that reflect the strength of faith, the role of tradition, the voice of women in Judaism, and the power of people's actions to bring about miracles. Two of the most compelling stories are rooted in history but set in contemporary times. In one, a lost soccer game and a forgotten lunch play a role in an Israeli youth's learning to trust his Arabic classmate; in the other Leah's need to perform a good deed to fulfill a bat mitzvah requirement and a Holocaust survivor's testimony come together.
