By: Jane Breskin Zalben / Illustrated by: Thai Phuong

Chanukah and Christmas come together in this story of an interfaith, intergenerational family's blended holiday.

The children are used to the two parts of their identity remaining separate, celebrating with each part of their family in turn. But this year is different: all their grandparents are coming to partake in both Jewish and Christian traditions together.

Complete with a sweet acknowledgment of the concern at the forefront of each child’s mind—how will this affect the presents?—Gingerbread Dreidels is a story for interfaith families that shows how love is at the center of every holiday.
