It's the last night of Hanukkah at Rachel's house, and there aren't enough potato latkes for all their guests! So Rachel goes next door to borrow some potatoes from sweet Mrs. Greenberg. Every year, their neighbor is all alone on Hanukkah, and every year Rachel's family invites her to come over. But Mrs. Greenberg always says she doesn't want to be a bother. "She's got a heart of gold, but she's as stubborn as an ox," says Mama.
Luckily, Rachel is every bit as kind-hearted and stubborn—and she just might be clever enough to get Mrs. Greenberg to change her mind!
