Sophie and her brother are excited by the arrival of Hanukkah, and they happily clean the cottage and shine the Menorah as their gift to the family. But when their mother shares her worry that they do not have enough cooking oil to last eight days, their father tells them the story behind the holiday celebration and the miracle of the oil. Inspired by the story, the family creates its own Miracle Jar and watches the oil disappear as they enjoy the special food that each day brings. The family's hope and faith is confirmed when a last wipe of the cloth produces enough oil to prepare the eight day's treat.

There’s only a little bit of cooking oil in the cabinet, and we need oil to make our eight holiday treats. I’m not sure there’s enough oil to last all eight days of Hanukkah.” Mother reached up and pulled the jar of oil down

an apple, and then Sophie added a stream of sweet golden honey. When the mash was ready, Mother spread it onto the pancake, rolled it into a log, and sliced it into four equal parts. Everyone got a piece of the eighth miracle treat. Sophie was very excited. She hugged her mother, then licked her fingers clean of the apple and honey. “You did it!” she told her mother. “You made a real Hanukkah miracle! You made the oil last all eight nights, just like the oil in the temple!” Father was also

shining the old menorah. When he was finished, he put the shamash candle in the center and the first night’s candle on the end. “It’s beautiful!” said Mother. She picked up Ruben and twirled him around the room. “This will be the nicest Hanukkah ever.” Before long, Father appeared in the kitchen doorway, carrying an armload of firewood. He shook off the freshly fallen snow and greeted his family. “My, my, my. The house is so nice and clean. And the menorah shines like a bright new sheckel.

I wonder, who did such a beautiful job?” Sophie and Ruben jumped up and down. “Those are our Hanukkah gifts to you and Mother!” Sophie told him excitedly. “I swept the floors, and Ruben shined the menorah!” “Those are the best gifts we have ever received,” said Father. “Thank you. And we’re all looking forward to your holiday treats,” he told Mother. “Well,” Mother said thoughtfully, “If we’re going to have my holiday treats, we’re going to need an eight-day miracle, just like the first
