Gloria GoldreichThis moving take with its gentle illustrations adds a new and important dimension to the festival of lights.
—Hadassah Magazine, December 2003
Imprisoned at a camp called Auschwitz during World War II, twelve-year-old Zev and eleven-year-old David experience a Chanukah miracle in answer to their prayers.
This story is only one of the billions of tales that, like the stars in heaven, leaves us with an impression of light and makes us realize that we are never alone and that faith and hope have a purpose – often leading to a rewarding end.
Since the beginning of time, such events have taken place – but only rarely have they been documented and told. May we thus remember that while we mark and celebrate those events, which those before us have effectively noted, let us not neglect that every day God’s miracles come before us in manners untold. These miracles too must be recognized together with those we have chosen to celebrate through time and tradition.
