Macy's Sunday Story Time: Hanukkah

Recommended for children ages 4 - 7.

Each week New-York Historical Society educators read one to two engaging picture books around a theme. The themes are related to New York City, American history, current holidays, or new exhibitions.

Mindy’s family isn’t the average New York City family—they’re tiny! Living behind the walls of the Eldridge Street Synagogue, Mindy’s family has learned how to use objects from our world in their home, including candles for Hanukkah. But what happens when the synagogue gets a cat? Mindy and her family have to adapt in order to save the holiday!
