  Sometimes, in the excitement of the moment, we forget the meaning behind our favorite holidays. When we think of Hanukkah for example we think of lighting the candles of the menorah, eating latkes and doughnuts, playing with a dreidel, and receiving chocolate money and other little gifts. Did you know that another name for Hanukkah is the Festival of Lights and do you know why Jews celebrate Hanukkah for eight days?
  With this simply and clearly written book in hand, young children will learn why Jews celebrate Hanukkah and what the symbolism is behind the many Hanukkah traditions that they enjoy. Throughout the book the text is illustrated with plenty of annotated photographs.
  This is one of the titles in the “My first look at holidays” series.
