Learning About Hanukkah

Today we had a visit from a friend to teach us about Hanukkah and all the traditions that are celebrated with this holiday. She read some stories to us about the Menorah which holds 8 candles. Then she talked to us about the wooden Dreidel game and gave each child one to take home. She mentioned traditional foods that are served, like the latke hashbrown and even gave us all doughnuts! It is wonderful that we have such devoted parents to take the time to teach these children about the Jewish holiday and the Mitzvah, which means a "good deed".
