Scott Davis renews our connection to the tone, the texture, and the spirit of Eastern European shtetl life, engaging our minds, stirring our emotions, and renewing our faith. —Rabbi Raachel Jurovics
A delightful Chanukah presentation based on Scott Davis’s original stories about the tiny shtetl town of Oykvetchnik. Meet the caretaker of the synagogue who can’t remember where he placed the big menorah, the rabbi who can’t find a husband for his beautiful but vain daughter, and an old pawnshop menorah that teaches a young boy the deepest meanings of Chanukah.
Blending the traditional themes of Chanukah with a nostalgic visit to the Jewish “old country” of 19th-century Eastern Europe, Scott’s fun, humorous, and soulful stories offer the whole family an uplifting and heartwarming way to celebrate the Festival of Lights.
Excerpt from “Reb Shimon the Shammes” by Scott Davis
“Your stories are utterly charming, often deliciously humorous, and speak universal truths that cross generations and cultures.” —Frank Levering
