In the Kar-Ben book All About Hanukkah, there is a section called Free to Be that gives questions and ideas for families to think about and discuss while the Hanukkah candles are burning:
- Trace you family's geography. Were there times when they emigrated in search of freedom?
- Hanukkah was a struggle for spiritual freedom; Purim was a struggle for physical survival. How are they different?
- Some families light an extra menorah to recall Jews living in poverty, and hunger who cannot celebrate Hanukkah.

“…recommended not only for students beginning to learn about the holidays, but also for teachers and parents to use as guidelines for teaching children who have not yet been exposed to the holidays in depth. Any synagogue or day-school will benefit from adding these titles to their collections.” –Association of Jewish Libraries Buy your copy today
