I've invited my family to participate with me in sharing this, one of our favorite holidays, with you. My wife, Steffi, a well-known graphic artist, has offered some wonderful illustrations to help convey Hanukkah to you; she has also written children's materials that appear later in this book. She's also a wonderful cook and has included several recipes unique to Hanukkah. Caution: don't eat too much of this; these are not fat-free recipes.
Our older daughter, Rebecca, an accomplished pianist, has pulled together some of the traditional Hanukkah songs that help tell the story. You'll enjoy singing them. Our younger daughter, Shira, an accomplished singer and "party-person," has written out the instructions for the dreydel game, a game developed to teach the story of God's miraculous redemption of the Jewish people.
I hope you will enjoy learning about this very special holiday, a day on which both Christians and Jews can celebrate.
