Hannukkah - The Festival of Lights

Our story takes place in Rome during the first festival of lights following the end of World War II. Hannah’s a young baker fighting to keep her family business alive despite the difficult times they live in. In the Jewish ghetto, where you can feel the community’s hope for a better future, the bakery is a meeting place for everyone, especially for those living in the building above the bakery. So much that, when Hannah and the bakery are threatened by the cold-hearted and greedy Commander Antioco, all the building’s residents team up and stand together behind her.

 

To save her family’s legacy, and herself, Hannah will need courage, determination, and all the help she can get… even the smallest gesture could make a huge difference!

 

As Rabbi Zaccaria says, “The only way to have a miracle…is to make it happen”. (This is a little clunky—could change to, “The only way a miracle can save us…is to make it happen” or something like that. But either way is good.)

 

To save her family’s legacy and herself, Hannah will need courage, determination and all the help she can get… Even the tiniest gesture could make a major difference.

As Rabbi Zaccaria says “The only way to have a miracle … is to make it happen”.
