Judy asked almost 100 people to share their Hanukkah memories. In this show, she brings more than 25 Hanukkah stories.

Some stories inspire, some stories are touching, many stories remind us that Hanukkah is the time to stand up and declare, "I am a Jew!" amidst a society which glorifies another holiday.

In addition, Judy shares stories she collected from the internet, including the one of a soldier who refused to change his dog tag from "Jewish" to "Protestant B", the woman in remission who learned to find strength and hope from the Maccabbees, the Bat Mitzvah girl who spread Hanukkah light to someone she's never met who needed that spark of light, and the story of Natan Sharansky celebrating Hanukkah in the most unlikely way as a prisoner in the Soviet gulag.

Tune in, and join in the Hanukkah warmth, light and pride at being Jewish!
