‘”It’s great fun to play dreidel. But children must go to sleep.” That is what Grandmother Leah had said. They begged her to tell them a story first.’
And so begins our third story of the evening. A story told by Grandmother Leah about a father and his eight children playing a game of Dreidel one evening. Suddenly, there is at knock at the door. A uninvited guest! He has lost his way in the blizzard and asks whether he could stay until morning?
But who is this strange figure? What does he want? And why are the animals in the stable stirring?

Every creator painfully experiences the chasm between his inner vision and its ultimate expression. The chasm is never completely bridged. We all have the conviction, perhaps illusory, that we have much more to say than appears on the paper

‘The snow had been falling for three days and three nights. Houses were snowed in and windowpanes covered with frost flowers. The wind whistled in the chimneys. Gusts of snow somersaulted in the cold air.’
And so begins our second story of the evening, ‘The Devil’s Trick’. The story of David, a poor boy with a pale face and black eyes, taking care of his baby brother in their one-room hut. Worryingly, their parents have not returned from the village and so David decides to go looking for them. But, the Devil and his Wife are on the loose. Before he sets off, David lights the Hanukkah candle and he knows that Heaven and Earth have vowed that however shrewd the Devil is, he will always make a mistake…especially on Hanukkah.
