With a mixture of modern folklore, neotraditional tales, and truly contemporary voices, NPR's Hanukkah Lights explores the many facets of Jewish storytelling. A lonely man finds love over the phone when trying to amend a Hanukkah Internet shopping disaster. Faced with discrimination on stage at a holiday pageant, a young girl rebels against the ignorance of her teachers and hopes for a new attitude in the coming decades. And a retirement community discovers one evening that Hanukkah is not just about tradition, but is also about embracing future generations and ways of celebrating.
A bonus audio CD produced by NPR includes four additional stories from the original broadcasts, read by Stamberg and Horwitz, allowing readers to listen to the tales in their car, kitchen, or living room. And NPR's Hanukkah Lights features beautiful original illustrations for each story and illustrative flourishes throughout, making the book the perfect gift for the holiday season.
