Finalist, National Jewish Book Award for Family Literature – delightful Chanukah tales your family will enjoy again and again.

Spell it however you like, this audiobook is more than one Hanukkah story! It goes to eleven!

"A rediscovered classic for children and adults, that feels fresh, read by an Audie Award nominee."

Once again, Izzy Abrahmson takes us on a visit to The Village. This collection of linked and overlapping stories about Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, culminates in a thrilling novella. As Mrs. Chaipul says, "It's like rye bread. You don't need to be Jewish to enjoy it.

Funny • Silly • Heartwarming • Delicious!

  • Who invented the Chanukah present?
  • What’s with Joseph Katz and all the dreidels?
  • Where did the Chanukah Duck come from?
  • When will it stop being so cold?!
  • Why did Rabbi Kibbitz leave that cryptic message? 
  • And how does Rachel Cohen save The Village? 

Frozen flames, muddled challah, and a community of family and friends.

“... all cultural backgrounds will be entertained by these tales.”
