Temple Beth David of the San Gabriel Valley will celebrate the spirit of Chanukah this year by hosting a book reading/signing event with Jewish storyteller Scott Hilton Davis. Davis, who was born and raised in Monterey Park, is a storyteller and a seven-time Emmy Award-winning public television producer. At Temple Beth David, he will introduce his newest book Chanukah Tales from Oykvetchnik. Davis’s book is a collection of eight short stories he wrote – one for each night of Chanukah -- that celebrate Jewish history, culture, and values. The stories take readers into “Oykvetchnik” (Oy + kvetch + nik), a tiny shtetl town in Eastern Europe. The event is free and open to the public.
