Reads for Hanukkah!

Hanukkah

December 20, 2019

This year, Hanukkah (or Chanukah) will begin the evening of Sunday, December 22. The annual Jewish holiday lasts eight days and nights in commemoration of the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. Often called the Festival of Lights, Hanukkah is celebrated with the exchange of gifts and the nightly lighting of the menorah. Traditional Jewish foods, including latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiyot (jelly-filled doughnuts), are also enjoyed during this time along with playing dreidel.

In honor of this special holiday, here are a few Hanukkah books in Mid-Continent Public Library’s collection:
