Mendel’s Hanukkah Mess Up is the first picture book co-authored by husband-and-wife team Chana and Larry Stiefel, who will present an interactive reading of Mendel’s Hanukkah Mess Up which—if they don’t mess up—will include a Mitzvah Mobile, music, chocolate gelt, and lots of shenanigans. Audience participation is appreciated! 

Chana Stiefel is the award-winning author of more than 30 humorous and heartfelt books for children, both fiction and nonfiction. Her recent titles include The Tower of Life: How Yaffa Eliach Rebuilt Her Town in Stories and Photographs and Let Liberty Rise: How America’s Schoolchildren Helped Save the Statue of Liberty. She loves visiting schools and libraries to share her passion for reading and writing with children.  

Larry Stiefel is a pediatrician at Tenafly Pediatrics and the author of the short story blog “The Maggid of Bergenfield,” from which Mendel’s Hanukkah Mess Up was created. Chana and Larry live in New Jersey and have four children.
