Ellen Frank’s Hanukkah Illuminated: A Book of Days is the first modern illuminated and handwritten story of Hanukkah. A devotional work of art that combines illuminated paintings with unique texts, Hanukkah Illuminated speaks in a contemporary voice while echoing the great illuminated paintings which flourished in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

Hanukkah Illuminated: A Book of Days presents in English the vibrant tradition of Hebrew illumination for an audience of all ages and all faiths. The story by Everett Fox (author of The Schocken Bible and Special Consultant to The Prince of Egypt) and the illuminated art progress from darkness to light as Hanukkah Illuminated celebrates the richness of the holiday and its symbols. An ancient story of the search for redemption, Hanukkah Illuminated unites historic Israel’s experience of natural and cultural worlds in its search for redemption. Hanukkah Illuminated culminates in a vision of harmony and peace, in which the world is infused with transcendent light.
