Jewish Values: Hanukkah, Shmanukkah!

Publisher: 
Publication Year: 
2005
Number of Pages: 
53 p.
Note: 
Three rabbis from Hanukkah past, present, and future haunt old man Scroogemacher's dreams in this parody of Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Packed into the story are capsule summaries of the immigration experience, Jewish American labor history, and a vision of an ideal, multicultural world where children learn in peace and harmony and women become rabbis. The narrative style is heavy in Yiddishisms and the illustrations are bold. An author's note, an illustrator's note, a glossary, and a list of books for further reading complete an instructive message, told with verve.
