What does Hanukkah mean to Jewish people? Author Tami Lehman-Wilzig discusses the origin of the Jewish festival of Hanukkah and some of the standard practices that go with celebrating it, such as spinning the dreidel. Then she takes the reader to various places throughout the world where Jewish people live, such as the United States, Turkey, Uzbekistan, Italy, Australia, Poland, Tunisia, and of course Israel, to give some historical background and then describe many of the local customs that have arisen in the observance of Hanukkah. Also, there are recipes for several Hanukkah treats. At the end, a "Hanukkah Potpourri" section and a glossary to explain many of the words used provide additional information. This is a good resource to explain Hanukkah especially for Jewish students but also for anyone interested in learning more about this Jewish festival.
