Gifts of Hanukkah

This is a season for giving--of ourselves as well, our cultures, our sense of history, all that we have become and can share with others.

Today Hanukkah begins. For Jewish readers, it's a time of rededication. For those who are not Jewish, it's an opportunity to learn more about the faith of others as we grow in our own.

ON HANUKKAH by Cathy Goldberg Fishman is written from a rich background of heritage with the heart and skill of a teacher. A good book for reading now, this will lead you to more titles by the same author when other Jewish holy days and festivals are observed.

Do you have a favorite children's book about your own faith that would build bridges of understanding within your child's circles or your own?
