It is holiday season, and when evening falls, all of the windows in Isaac's neighborhood glow red and green with Christmas lights. All the windows, that is, except his, where the family's Chanukah menorah shines blue and white. Isaac writes poems about beautiful colors.
Then, in the middle of the night, someone throws a rock through his window, and Isaac and his family worry about what to do.
Across the street, Isaac's best friend Teresa thinks of a way to express her support: she draws a picture of a menorah and displays it in her family's big picture window. Friends and classmates do the same, and the idea grows and spreads. Before long, thousands of windows across the city are displaying menorahs in their windows.
This story of community, resourcefulness, and the beauty of lights, was inspired by real events. You will be able to read about them in author Lee Wind's online resources, when the book is published.
