The Ninth Night of Hanukkah

  • From the Publisher
September 1, 2019

A heart­warm­ing pic­ture book with a fresh twist on a Hanukkah cel­e­bra­tion: cel­e­brat­ing a ninth night with new neigh­bors and friends!

It’s Hanukkah, and Max and Rachel are excit­ed to light the meno­rah in their fam­i­ly’s new apart­ment. But, unfor­tu­nate­ly, their Hanukkah box is miss­ing. So now they have no meno­rah, can­dles, drei­dels, or, well, any­thing! Luck­i­ly, their neigh­bors are hap­py to help, offer­ing thought­ful and often humor­ous stand-in items each night. And then, just as Hanukkah is about to end, Max and Rachel, inspired by the shamash (“helper”) can­dle, have a bril­liant idea: they’re going to cel­e­brate the ninth night of Hanukkah as a way to say thanks to every­one who’s helped them!
