Hanukah is coming and Sam has made a menorah in his class at Hebrew school. Sam is excited to celebrate with his family, but don’t they have too many menorahs already? Sam keeps his menorah a surprise while hoping to find a way to make his gift special and not just another to add to the crowded collection.
