A Song in the Flame (a Tale of Israel)

Chanukah is a time of music, light, and celebration, but for best friends Esti and Leah, this year it is bittersweet, as they find out they will be separated across the still new country of Israel. Thanks to a magical tale, a menorah from the Old Country, and melodies that are even more ancient than Esti's Bubbe, the girls find a way to stay connected and remember each other's friendship whether their very different journeys take them to the city or through the desert, studying old traditions or learning new ways.
