From Cantor Wunch:
This week Cantor C’s grade 6 class continued our history lesson. We learned about how after the Babylonian exile the Jews rebuilt the Temple and had several years of relative calm. We learned that the Greeks eventually took over that part of the world, and how this led to the events of our Chanukah story. The students all wrote their own prayer for Chanukah- I highly recommend that you ask your child about their prayer, as they were really beautiful.
