Chanukah On The Prairie is the perfect introduction to a little-known slice of American Jewish history.
As many Eastern European Jews immigrated to America, a small few traveled beyond New York City to the West. There, in the rolling plains, much like the homes they had left behind, Jews from all over Eastern Europe came together to make a new home.
Based upon true events, this poignant story by Burt E. Schuman with beautiful illustrations by Rosalind Charney Kaye, follows the journey of the Zalcmans as they travel from their small village in Poland to Ellis Island and ultimately to Grand Forks. This story is a wonderful addition to any child's library. Join in the joy as the new immigrants celebrate their first Chanukah in a new land.
From the first notes of this remarkable recording you'll know it's not the "same old Chanukah music." With joyful exuberance, Julie Silver brings a refreshing new sound to many of our Chanukah favorites. Weaving threads of rock and folk with musical traditions from around the globe, the innovative arrangements and Julie's clear, soulful vocals perfectly capture the powerful message and enduring spirit of Chanukah. An instant favorite for listeners of all ages!
This special value Chanukah gift set includes two wonderful children's story books, plus an interactive activity book. A perfect Chanukah gift for parents or grandparents to give to their children or grandchildren - and at just $18.00 (a $39.85 value), the price is right, too!
