Holidays fill a human need for celebration, for remembrance, and for tradition. A part of that tradition is captured in the stories we hear, over and over, as we celebrate the days that give shape to our year. In the long storytelling tradition of Jewish people, Theodore Bikel narrates the story of Mendel the Peddler; Feivel, the wealthy lumber merchant; and the wise Rabbi Yonah, who resolves, with great wisdom, the Hanukkah dispute that arises between them. Bikel reads IN THE MONTH OF KISLEV in wonderfully authentic voices while lively music plays and children laugh. The extended author's note, read to the same lively music, informs the uninitiated listener about the history and customs of Hanukkah. T.B. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 00]
