Why do we light candles? Whatis a dreidel? Josh learns the answers to these questions and the story of Hanukkah as he celebrates this special holiday with his family.

Why do we light the menorah? What do the letters on the dreidel mean? Josh learns about the miracles that happened a long time ago, and how the traditions of Hanukkah are continued today. The interactive format makes this introduction to a special holiday accessible to the very young.
