Hershel of Ostropol is looking forward to the Hanukkah celebrations in the village. But when he arrives, he sees no candles or lights; all the windows are dark. The villagers are afraid of the goblins who haunt the synagogue at the top of the hill. Hershel decides to chase away the goblins. He comes up with several ingenious tricks to fool them. Then the fearsome Goblin King pays him a visit! Hershel will need all of his courage and resourcefulness to bring Hanukkah back to the village.
