It's night. It's dark. And Daniel is frightened. He and his sister Naomi are all alone in the sukkah, the hut their family built for Sukkot, a Jewish harvest festival. There's nowhere in the hut to plug in a night light. Suddenly Daniel and Naomi hear a noise. Is it a wolf? A monster? Or worse?
Daniel wants to go inside the house, where it's safe. But then Naomi has an idea that comforts them both and helps them remember their ancestors in a very special way.
The URJ Press is very proud to re-release this classic story of Sukkot with all new full-color illustrations.
