Summary

Summary

The story of the menorah

It began with a prophet and a precious metal, when Moses threw a piece of gold into a fire and created the first menorah. It continued with a wicked king, his ruthless army, and a people who battled tirelessly for their faith. And it endures in the yearly celebration of Hanukkah, the festival of lights that rejoices in the memories -- and the miracles -- of long ago.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-4‘This excellent, accessible book begins with the original menorah, the seven-branched symbol given to Moses by God. It burned, day and night, in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and was hidden until the Jews, led by Judah Maccabee, overcame the might of Antiochus and returned to the city to rebuild the temple. Rich, abstract gouache and colored-pencil paintings face each page of text, adding depth and drama to the straightforward text. A luminous choice for inclusion in any holiday collection.‘LF (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
