Cakes and Miracles: A Purim Tale
Purim is approaching and Hershel, the only blind boy in the village, wishes he could help his mother prepare hamantashen for the holiday. If only I could see, he thinks, I could help my mother more . That night, Hershel dreams of a winged angel descending a sparkling ladder. She says, " Make what you see. You see when you close your eyes. You see in your dreams." With new courage, Hershel learns to trust his dream and creates something more beautiful than anyone in the whole village can imagine. An Author's Note about Purim is also included.
