Book: Festival of Lights: The Story of Hanukkah by Maida Silverman and Carolyn Ewin. More Hanukkah crafts, activities, and printables. Tell children the following story about how Hanukkah (also known as Chanukah), the Jewish Festival of Lights, first began. A long time ago, over 2000 years, people called Jews who were from a country called Judea fought against the people of a country called Syria. The Jews were angry because Antiochus, a Greek who ruled Syria, said that all the Jewish people had to worship Greek gods instead of the one God they worshipped. The Jews refused to this.

Describes the origin and significance of the Festival of Lights and includes instructions for the traditional candle-lighting ceremony and a holiday song and game

Great for a younger audience, which is what it was used for.

I used this book with 3rd graders, and I felt it was a little difficult for them. However, I took time to explain the historical and Biblical context to them. I felt it did a great job of helping us understand why Hanukkah is celebrated. It also provided some great activities in the back of the book that were helpful and interesting. Overall, this book provided my group of 3rd graders with a rich experience and they really enjoyed it.
Kikora
Many books tell about the oil burning for 8 days and not just one day.
It is the story about the struggle of removing the pagan worship that had happened in the temple
and the re-dedication of the Jewish temple.

The nook came damaged and looked like it was from a garage sale. It was not what I expected for a gift to my niece, especially for over $40.00.

Most Westerners know of Hanukkah from the appearance on calendars, but few outside of Judaism know much more about it than the very basic candle-lighting, and even that most of the goyim don't really understand. This book, 'Festival of Lights: The Story of Hanukkah', by Maida Silverman, is in reality a children's book; however, like many children's books, it is a wonderful teaching tool, and this one could teach adults just as well as it can children.
The book is beautifully illustrated by Carolyn Ewing. The full-colour pictures, appearing on every page, show people in period settings and costumes. Hanukkah is based on actual historical events; unlike Yom Kippur which is a more `philosophical/theological' holiday, this one is much more an historical memory event. That, of course, is fully in keeping with the general importance given to history by the Jewish people.
Hanukkah commemorates the Maccabean revolt against Hellenic overlords, and celebrates the miracle that occurred during the rededication of the Temple.
This book, in a merely 20 pages, recounts the story in simple terms that develop the military and political historical events, as well as the importance of tradition and the Temple in Judaism at that time. This book is not so much an original story as it is a retelling of the story. The retelling of story is also traditional in Jewish culture, a time-honoured tradition that occurs with individual families often incorporating their own experiences into the fabric of the story.
The final pages tell of the legend of the Menorah (a candelabra which, for Hanukkah, has 9 candles), the legend of the dreidle as well as instructions for playing the dreidle game and instructions for making your own dreidle, and the words and tune to the Maoz Tzur, which means Rock of Ages, a song of praise for the rededication of the Temple.
Hanukkah is a holiday whose importance has arisen among Jewish peoples as a response to the ever-growing influence of Christmas. Hanukkah is actually a fairly minor holiday in the Jewish calendar, save for the importance given to it as a counter to the almost overwhelming intrusion of commercial Christmas into daily life during the late fall and early winter seasons.
Hanukkah is also a holiday that Christians show know, and could even celebrate. The events tell of historical events that pose no theological difficulties for most Christian denominations and belief systems; indeed, had the Maccabean revolt not been successful, and had the Jewish people been either destroyed or assimilated, then the culture that gave birth to Jesus and his disciples would not have existed a few generations later.
This book is short and sweet, a good holiday gift for children. Published by the Little Simon division of Simon and Simon, it is intended for kids who can read at an early elementary level. It is done in a narrative style that lends itself to character readings, so children or adults could easily adapt this for an oral retelling of the story, or even put together a short play from the text.

If you are a Christain looking for a more spiritual way to celebrate the holidays, this book is an excellent way to introduce Hanukkah to your family of all ages.This year 2007, was our first year of Hanukkah we loved it, it also allowed us to discuss the symbolic nature of the story and relate it to our lives.
Rocksmith
Perfect version for older children. Beautiful illustrations, full of action and color.
very informative
