Menorah Story

Overview

The story of the menorah is as rich and inspiring as its long-standing tradition of symbolism. It began with a prophet and a precious metal, when Moses threw a piece of gold into a fire and created the first menorah. It continued with a wicked king, his ruthless army, and a people who battled tirelessly for their faith. And it endures today in the yearly celebration of Hanukkah, the festival of lights that rejoices in the memories—and the miracles—of long ago.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
The history of the menorah, the branched candlestick sacred to the Jewish people, is traced in this book from its creation in Biblical times to the present. In briefly worded passages that accompany full page vibrantly colored illustrations, Mr. Podwall tells of the first menorah and how it created itself; the menorahs that had to be hidden to avoid confiscation; and the miraculous menorah that burned for 8 days on oil enough for only one day. The story is short and elegant. The illustrations, rendered mostly in yellows and oranges, glow as if they were lit from within. It's a loving tribute to an ever-changing symbol of Judaism and miracles.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-4--This excellent, accessible book begins with the original menorah, the seven-branched symbol given to Moses by God. It burned, day and night, in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and was hidden until the Jews, led by Judah Maccabee, overcame the might of Antiochus and returned to the city to rebuild the temple. Rich, abstract gouache and colored-pencil paintings face each page of text, adding depth and drama to the straightforward text. A luminous choice for inclusion in any holiday collection.--LF
