Trin at The Global Dig attended a student matinee of "Hanukkah Lights in the Big Sky" at MN Jewish Theatre Company playing through 12/22/19. Trin writes: Hanukkah Lights in the Big Sky is a play inspired by true events that occurred in 1993 in Billings, Montana, and was commissioned by Minnesota Jewish Theatre Company in 2005. This play retells how a brick was thrown at a menorah in a child's window during Hanukkah and how community leaders of all faiths came together to help spread a message of tolerance and peace, inspiring 10,000 families to display menorahs on Christmas.
