This week, Shorashimers continued to read our Chanukah story but this time we started to picture what the different parts of the story look like. We had three different areas in Beit Shorashim where we could build all of the parts of our Chanukah story together. We used blocks, marbles, colored chips, wood sticks, natural materials, and so much more. The children had so many ideas and were ready to start building right away! Shorashimers wanted to build scenes of people fighting, temples, and “a חנוכייה(Chanukiyah-chanukah menorah) because of the miracle with the oil.”
In addition to all of our building, in Yetzirah this week Shorashimers got to make their own חנוכייה (Chanukiyah-chanukah menorah) that they will take home and can be used to light during Chanukah. Shorashimers were so excited to make something that they could use at home with their families.
