Discover Rebecca’s Stories
Candlelight for Rebecca
Rebecca’s teacher, Miss Maloney, assigns the class to make Christmas decorations—but Rebecca’s family is Jewish and doesn’t celebrate Christmas. Miss Maloney tells Rebecca that Christmas is a national holiday, for all Americans to celebrate. Although her parents came from Russia, Rebecca knows she’s as American as anyone else, even without celebrating Christmas. Could Miss Maloney be wrong? Then, on the first night of Hanukkah, Rebecca finds kindness in an unexpected place—and learns the real meaning of the holiday season.
