We had a wonderful day today. We began our day with the Shinshinim. They came to tell us all about Chanukah. We coloured pictures of soofganiyot (donuts). At tefilah we sang Chanukah songs and had fun with our buddies. Back in the classroom we learned all about dreidels – the letters on them and what they mean. We divided into small groups and had fun spinning the dreidels. Afterwards, we read the story “The Chanukah Guest”, which is all about a bear who is mistaken for a Rabbi! You can only imagine the hilarity that takes place.
As well, please note that I have one purple chanukiah left with no name. If it is yours PLEASE tell the office ASAP so you can come pick it up and use it!
