Note: 
When Izzy and Olivia Bloom invite their neighbors over for Shabbat dinner, everyone is shocked to find out that the Blooms don't have Shabbat candles. Instead, they have an antique Sabbath lamp which burns oil that's been passed down from generation to generation. The story behind the lamp, shared by Izzy, encompasses shtetl life, the Jewish immigrant experience, and one family’s determination 'to be whole again' after a long separation; it also prompts the Blooms’ guests to appreciate anew their own cherished Shabbat artifacts. A 2018 Sydney Taylor Notable for Younger Readers.
