Summary
Sophie and her brother are excited by the arrival of Hanukkah, and they happily clean the cottage and shine the Menorah as their gift to the family. But when their mother shares her worry that they do not have enough cooking oil to last eight days, their father tells them the story behind the holiday celebration and the miracle of the oil. Inspired by the story, the family creates its own Miracle Jar and watches the oil disappear as they enjoy the special food that each day brings. The family's hope and faith is confirmed when a last wipe of the cloth produces enough oil to prepare the eight day's treat
Summary
A family in the Old Country hopes for their own small miracle. After Sophie and her younger brother Ruben help with the holiday preparations, their mother comments that they may not have enough cooking oil for her to make a traditional treat for each of Hanukkah's eight nights -- and they're snowed in, so they can't go out for more. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
