CHANUKAH: CAPTURING THE LIGHT

CHANUKAH: CAPTURING THE LIGHT

$19.99
More Info

The events of the story of Chanukah are well-known: the heroic revolt against Greek oppression, the stunning victory on the battlefield, and the jar of oil which contained only enough to last for one day but miraculously burned for eight.

Still, a basic question arises: Jewish history is full of miracles. Few of them become holidays. Why Chanukah?

To become part of the Jewish calendar, a holiday needs to contain core messages of ongoing relevance regarding our national identity and national destiny. Chanukah: Capturing the Light is dedicated to uncovering those messages. Drawing on a vast array of classic and contemporary sources, renowned teacher and bestselling author Rabbi Immanuel Bernstein presents a deep and profound understanding of Chanukah, inspiring the reader to allow its light to illuminate the eight days of the festival -- and the entire year.

Indie Awards Silver Medal Winner (Children's Nonfiction)
The Skipping Stone Magazine Honor Award (one of the best multicultural books for children in 2019)

When legendary and beloved actor, singer and activist Theo Bikel wrote a short story, shortly before his passing in 2015, about his happy childhood as a Jewish boy in Vienna--confused by rising anti-Semitism, and ultimately forced to flee after the Nazi takeover--he never could have imagined that Jewish children in the US, at the start of 2020, would have to ask their parents the same questions he had asked his own parents: Why are we hated? Why must I be afraid to be who I am?

In The City of Light , Theodore poignantly recounts moments from his childhood in Vienna-- at first the happy memories of family, sweet cakes, and holidays; and then darker times, when he experienced and witnessed brutal and violent anti-Semitism as Nazi influence grew. Set in Vienna in 1937-38 during Nazi Germany's annexation of Austria, a young Jewish boy witnesses Kristallnacht, "The Night of Broken Glass," and elderly Jews being spat upon and forced to clean the sidewalks with their coats. Once at home in the city, he is ostracized and beaten.

One night, the boy dreams that his favorite Jewish superhero, Judah Maccabee, has arrived to save Vienna's Jews. But when he awakens, there has been no Maccabean rescue. Years pass and the boy, now an old man, returns to Vienna and finds its Jewish community and Temple have been restored. He looks for the eternal light in the Temple and can't find it. Then suddenly it becomes clear to him: "The light was there all the time; it was in my own heart."

This special book, gentle and bittersweet in its tone, also includes a three-page Yiddish glossary, a recipe for Honey Cake from Bikel's grandmother, and sheet music of a little-known Hanukkah song Little Candle Fires with a link to a website where you can hear Theo singing it.

Theodore Bikel's The City of Light is receiving critical acclaim, loved by adults who have followed Bikel for decades, as well as young people struggling to make sense of the acts of hatred and bigotry they are now exposed to daily. Aimee Ginsburg Bikel, Theo's widow and veteran journalist, has added a backstory, several glossaries, and an afterword about an event in Bikel's life with stunning historic significance. Noah Phillips' moving illustrations bring the story to life.

The Book of Esther has inspired and impacted the American project since its very inception. Rabbis and ethicists, abolitionists and artists, preachers and presidents, have understood the text to speak to their moment. It has offered solace to immigrants, forged solidarity, impacted politics, and, in the spirit of Esther 4:14, roused individuals to realize that deliverance was not to come from some other place, but from their own heroic actions on behalf of their people . As we Americans once again find ourselves navigating antisemitism and bigotry, questioning the limits and purposes of power, reassessing gender dynamics, and grappling with how to keep an ethnically diverse empire from imploding, it is once again to Esther we must turn, to the timeless scroll that continues to urge us to find strength and redemptive possibility in the least expected of places. Includes the Megilla text.

The light of Jewish wisdom, and of an authentic Jewish world view, shines on Chanukah, perhaps, as on no other holiday. The holiday of Chanukah was born out of a clash between two civilizations and two fundamentally different ways of looking at man, at life, and indeed all of reality: This was the essential clash between the Greeks and the Jews; the military clash was secondary. In exploring the messages that lie at the heart of Chanukah, we discover immutable messages that lie at the core of Judaism. Chanukah is the celebration of a vision so lofty and a dedication so deep, that it guaranteed that the Jewish nation, and the Jewish message, would endure - and shine - for all time. Inspiring Lights is a collection of essays from a wide range of educators and writers, each offering another perspective on the timeless messages contained in Chanukah. Some of the themes explored in this precious book are: Chanukah and the Mystical Light of Creation The Unique Relationship of the Jewish Woman to Chanukah Chanukah Echoes in the Garden of Eden The Essence of Jewish Leadership Where Jewish Thought and Greek Thought Part Ways and much more. Whether this is your fifth Chanukah, or your fiftieth, in these pages you will certainly find not only fresh insight and inspiration for your Chanukah celebration, but for all of Jewish life.

Do you know the power of tears? The tears of a child, a widow, a tzaddik? And, yes, the tears shed by "regular"” people, like you and me? Chazal tell us clearly what tears can achieve: "Those who mourn Yerushalayim will merit to see it rebuilt." If we mourn the Churban, if we cry for our loss - we will see our redemption, we will rejoice in our geulah. Our mourning, our tears, are the key to redemption -- and the Kinnos are the key to our tears. Two thousand years is a long, long time to remember and to mourn, and it is the Kinnos, the Lamentations, that have enabled us to remember, and to long for what was taken from us. In this second of a series, Rabbi Yechiel Spero, whose stories have touched so many hearts and awakened so many slumbering souls, once again brings his masterly storytelling gifts to selected Kinnos, bringing them to vivid life. In stories set in death camps, hospital wards, shtetls and our own modern homes, Rabbi Spero finds tragedy and courage, destruction and rebuilding, suffering and comfort. And, always, he finds a message that make the Kinnos meaningful to us, so that we can say them with sincerity and true emotion and enable them to bring us closer to Hashem. Read this book. Say the Kinnos. Shed a tear - and maybe, just maybe, that will be the "one more tear" that we need to bring the final redemption.
