“Mommy, why does the menorah look like a tree?”

In honor of a more feminist, earth-based Chanukah, we wrote our own story:

Luz and the Light of Chanukah

Indeed, to reclaim some of the ancient female and goddess traditions, we sometimes have to create our own. I am not alone here, trying to find a meaningful way to celebrate this holiday of light. Tamis Renteria also recently wrote about Celebrating a Feminist Chanukah.

In this story, I celebrate the ancient female practices while connecting them to modern symbols. This is a picture book, intended for younger children or the young at heart. Enjoy!
