Of the many joys of Hanukkah, the joining of family and friends is perhaps the greatest. This is why young Rachel and her family are especially eager to have their dear elderly neighbor Mrs. Greenberg over for Hanukkah dinner. But every year their neighbor refuses, not wanting to be a bother.
This year, Rachel and her mother are busy preparing for their Hanukkah celebration, when eight more people are suddenly added to the guest list, and there are no more potatoes in the cellar! Maybe Mrs. Greenberg will come for dinner if we borrow some of her potatoes, suggests Rachel. And off she runs into the snowy night to see if her plan will work.
Mrs. Greenberg is delighted to lend the potatoes, and then some eggs, and finally chairs - until Rachel has an idea. If Mrs. Greenberg won't come to them for Hanukkah, they'll just have to borrow her house, too, and take the celebration to her!
The well-told, well-illustrated, and entertaining holiday story has its own heart of gold. . . A lovely message, wrapped in a light-hearted story.
