In Nitzanim we dove into Hannukah this week, with lots of new things to explore and create. A highlight, for obvious reasons, was making סופגנייות (sufganiot, donuts) together on Tuesday.
- “They’re like presents and you can give them to other people.”
- “As a reward for cleaning up the temple.” (i.e. when the Maccabees cleaned up the Temple in the Hanukkah story.
- “Because the oil lasted eight days.” (Referring to the story of oil miraculously lasting 8 days while the Maccabees cleaned the Temple)
- “As a prize for beating the army!” (Referring to the armies that fought each other in the Hannukah story.)
Drop by the Kehila Room (where we have Shirah/T’efillah at the end of each day) to see more about what we’re doing for Hannukah, including lots of art work from Nitzanim!
