Toby Belfer Never Had a Christmas Tree

Toby Belfer never had a Christmas tree. Hers was the only Jewish family in the little country town where she lived with her parents and grandmother. The Belfers celebrated Hanukka-they didn't celebrate Christmas like the rest of the families in town. Toby invited all of her friends to join in her family's Hanukkah celebration.

With Toby and her family as their hosts, all of the children of the town learned about Hanukka and about the unique and fascinating traditions and customs that all Jewish families share. They learned about the menorah and the special blessings to offer the Lord when lighting the menorah candles; they learned how to play a traditional Jewish game by spinning a top called a dreidel; and they learned the story of how the Jewish people gained religious freedom. All of the children had a wonderful time learning and listening and playing games and eating scrumptious food! In the end, everyone was happy that Toby Belfer never had a Christmas tree.

This delightful tale is an explanation of Hanukkah and how one family celebrated the holiday in a small, non-Jewish, Southern town. For children 5-8, the book includes the complete rules for the game of dreidel, and instructions for building a menorah
