There are two Chelms. One is a real town in Poland. The other Chelm, the one in this story, is a make-believe town famous in Jewish folklore. Its people have good hearts, great dreams . . . and very little sense!

Tall tales about foolish folk of Chelm have been shared amd chuckled over for centuries, and David Adler carries on the tradition masterfully in Chanukah in Chelm. Mendel, the synagogue caretaker, needs a table to hold the menorah on the first night of Chanukah. In Chelm, the easiest task can become a chore of monumental proportions, and Mendel turns a simple trip to the storage closet into a hilariously bungled quest. David Adler's tongue-in-cheek text and Kevin O'Malley's rambunctious illustrations brim with good humor and bad jokes that have made Chelm stories family favorites for hundreds of years.
