Synopsis

Eli Remembers by Ruth Vander Zee, Marian Sneider

Year after year, Eli watches the solemn lighting of seven candles at his family's celebration of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. But these happy occasions are always tinged with sadness, and Eli doesn't understand why. Then one year he travels to Eastern Europe and finally hears the stories that for generations have been too painful to share. As Eli learns how the candles represent his family's sad connection to the Holocaust in Lithuania, he also learns a lesson about the importance of remembering. Subtle, yet powerful illustrations underscore the message of this picture book for older readers.
