Parakeet Named Dreidel, The

Parakeet Named Dreidel, The
The appearance of a Yiddish-speaking parakeet at a Brooklyn window one frosty Hanukkah evening, seems to cause the eerie extinction of the Hanukkah candles at the same moment in every house in long-ago Bilgoray, on each of the holiday's first seven nights. "The Parakeet Named Dreidel" ends in conventional fairy-tale fashion (after eight years the bird is reclaimed--by a young woman who will marry the son of the house)
