A Hanukkah Present CD Cover

  • What Shlemiel invented the Chanukah Present?
  • You think you have it bad? Try telling your wife she makes “The Lethal Latkes!”
  • Or maybe you want to win your bride with “The Spin of a Dreidle” And what’s with “A Chanukah Bush?”

“Lethal Latkes,” by the way, is not a murder mystery. It concerns some awful-tasting latkes (potato pancakes) and what you might call another Hanukkah miracle: love.”
New York Times 
“Listeners of all cultural backgrounds will be entertained by these tales.”

—School Library Journal


Humor and adventure, plus nice rhythm and pacing, make this a real gift, providing stories just right to read aloud each night while the candles burn down. 
Seattle JT News


“An entertaining CD that, like its title, will make a great Hanukkah present for Jewish children and their families.”
