This thrilling story takes place on the backdrop of the Spanish Inquisition, when the Jews were forced to pretend to be Christians while secretly observing Torah and mitzvos.

Join the Del-Mendala family as they light Chanukah candles in this dangerous time, laugh with them at the foolishness of those around them and help them devise a brave and dangerous escape plan… Shh… turn the pages quietly, so on one hears you!
