Cooking and Creating to Celebrate Chanukah

This week in Beit Shorashim, we were pretty excited that Chanukah was finally starting! To begin to get us in the mindset, we began the week by doing a Latke relay during משחקים (mischakim-games) and using dancing scarves while listening to some Chanukah songs. We also finished the final stages of building from our Chanukah story and came up with so many more ideas of what we heard in the story that we wanted to build.

With Chanukah beginning this week, we also got to bake לביבות (levivot-latkes) to share together and even eat with the third and fourth graders! We also made cards to take home and give to our families for Chanukah.

At the Jewish Enrichment Center, we light the חנוכייה (chanukiyah-chanukah menorah) all together as a big community during Chanukah and Shorashimers had the special honor of getting to light it in front of everyone the first and second nights!
