“Do you want to buy our amazing Chanukah Menorah?”
This week we have been preparing for Chanukah at the JLC, making Chanukah Menorahs, playing games, and learning about the history, traditions and stories of the holiday. Each Hebrew class created a dramatic Chanukah skit they will be sharing at school on Wednesday. Some groups created their interpretation of the Chanukah story while others made commercials about Chanukah. The students creativity and enthusiasm is very apparent in their work. They are extremely excited to preform the skits for their classmates.
