Associate Professor of Jewish Education Jewish Theological Seminary of America
"A groundbreaking new volume that every Jewish home should have. Taking Hanukkah beyond its conventional celebration as a perfunctory lighting of candles and an excuse for exchanging gifts, it gives families stimulating resources and a host of ideas for thinking about the values of the holiday. In addition, the book is fun for all ages and a delight to use."
Rabbi Joseph Telushkin
Author of Jewish Literacy and The Book of Jewish Values
"An important contribution to Jewish life this extraordinary, inspiring and compelling collection pays homage to both God and man. It will fill your family's Hanukkah with joy and meaning."
Rabbi Rachel Cowan
director, Cummings Jewish Life Program
"These are the books I have longed for each year at Hanukkah . . . These books move Hanukkah profoundly into adult realms: history, ethics, literature, politics, sociology, and poetry. Each year I will read them anew, and learn more."
Rabbi Harold Kushner
author, When Bad Things Happen to Good People
"The people who gave us the wonderful A Different Night: The Family Participation Haggadah have now given us the best and richest Hanukkah anthology extant a treasury of traditional and modern articles, inspirational and thought-provoking."
