ly, its history.
Utilizing a storytelling technique
and a simple conversational style,
the book attempts to convey to
children the spirit of a reborn land.
Each chapter on modern Israel
combines narration, description
and dialogue to weave a tale about
a real Israeli boy or girl, using
their adventures as a vehicle for
a wealth of factual information
about the myriad aspects of the
new life there.
At ceremonies Sunday, students of lintel Day School light the
Hanuka candles marking the beginning of both the festival and con-
struction of the new Hillel school building on an 11-acre site at 14
Mile and Middlebelt Rds., Farmington. It will be ready for occu-
pancy next September.
