Chanukah On The Prairie is the perfect introduction to a little-known slice of American Jewish history.

As many Eastern European Jews immigrated to America, a small few traveled beyond New York City to the West. There, in the rolling plains, much like the homes they had left behind, Jews from all over Eastern Europe came together to make a new home.

Based upon true events, this poignant story by Burt E. Schuman with beautiful illustrations by Rosalind Charney Kaye, follows the journey of the Zalcmans as they travel from their small village in Poland to Ellis Island and ultimately to Grand Forks. This story is a wonderful addition to any child's library. Join in the joy as the new immigrants celebrate their first Chanukah in a new land.
