Lev and Evie's Hanukah Challah
While preparing for Hanukah (the celebration of the festival of lights) Lev and Evies embattled family experiences their own miracle. A moment of enlightenment lifts them.
This sudden distance vision allows them to step back from their anger, laugh at themselves, remember their love and together defeat the monster their rage created.
The lesson plan accompanying this story includes a recipe for Challah and definitions of the Hebrew and Yiddish words used in the story.
