A Hanukah Story (Jewish Stories)
The little Hanukiyah stood gathering dust and watching as the spiders built elaborate cobwebs between its fingers. Sad, dusty and web-covered, the little Hanukiyah hid behind the large plate, hoping never to be seen again. One day the bells over the door jiggled, and the little Hanukiyah peeked from behind the plate and was startled by what it saw.
There was the biggest candle holder it had ever seen — and this enormous candle holder had 9 places just like it had. This new big candle holder was brought in for its annual cleaning and polishing.
The little Hanukiyah shook with joy as it looked at the new candle holder. It was enormous — it must have stood 4 feet high and its arms stretched 3 feet across. It looked so beautiful and proud, standing there tall and straight. The little Hanukiyah just stood there and stared at it all day long. Then, the large Hanukiyah looked around finally spotting the little dusty, cobweb covered Hanukiyah that was sitting up high. The large Hanukiyah smiled and they began to talk.

Why are we different? The large Hanukiyah stood quietly for a moment before it began to speak.
Seeing More with One Eye
In time, the foreign rulers became crueler and they forced the people to adopt a new religion. But the people would not have it. They believed in freedom and that no once could force another how to think or believe. They tried everything to convince the foreign rulers that freedom was important to them.
Finally, from among the people a small army arose who were willing to fight for freedom. Though fighting is not the best way to solve a problem, in this situation it was the only way.

Because of their courage, dedication, and belief that what they were fighting for was right, they eventually won. After winning the war, these people rededicated their temple — and held a celebration which lasted eight days. You and I are the special candle-holders which they use for those 8 nights. But, one question — that all sounds really good — but if this celebration lasts for 8 days — why do we have 9 places for candles? And just then, the shopkeeper opened the door and entered the store. And the shopkeeper had no idea that the two of them had talked the night away.
A strange thing happened though… the shopkeeper noticed the little Hanukiyah. He reached up and took it from the shelf and gave it a good polishing. Now the Hanukiyah was clean and shiny, and it stood so tall and proud knowing why it was different. That same afternoon two children came into the store — noticed the sparkling Hanukiyah — and bought it right away.
Taking it home, they placed it in the center of a large room table. Everyone who saw the Hanukiyah admired it. Kindle Edition File Size: Customer reviews There are no customer reviews yet.
