Overview

A beautifully illustrated children's book which draws upon the miraculous events of Chanukah -- the Festival of Lights -- and tells the meaningful, yet simple story of two young boys, best friends in a lonely camp during the Holocaust, whose faith and hope brings them their own Chanukah miracle. Separated from their families and far from their homes, Zev and David look to the stars to provide the spark of light in place of the nightly Menorah candle. On the first night, they pin their hopes on a lone star, and wait eagerly for the next night, to see if their Chanukah miracle will come true. A story of friendship and light, full of warmth and hope, richly illustrated and vividly told, Menorah in the Night Sky brings Zev and David to life, and illuminates the value of hope and the miracle of faith, in a way that all children, and their parents too, will enjoy.

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.

Foreword

The miracle of Chanukah is the story of hope, a pride of a people and unwavering faith in God. It confirms the principle that if you will something enough, and truly believe that which you wish for – that which you pray for, with all your might – it will come true.

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.
