Little Red Ruthie

A Hanukkah Tale

An enchanting holiday twist on an old fairy-tale classic finds the big bad wolf stalking a basket-carrying little girl on her way to grandmother’s house, or rather, Bubbe Basha’s. Traditional latkes, candle lighting, and retelling the tale of the Maccabees are matched with modern flourishes from Sue Eastland; the white snowy woods are a pleasant contrast to Ruthie’s candy-cane-striped leggings and puffy, hooded jacket in iconic crimson.
