In year 1 we were very lucky to have one of our lovely parent volunteers to teach our Lavender class about Hanukkah. Maurice came in and read the children the Hanukkah book that explained the history of the Jewish people and how they came to celebrate Hanukkah. After we read the book the class got to see the Menorah candle lighting and hear the Hebrew prayer that gets said when the candles are lit. After, all the children were given a dreidel and got to play the game and spin it. We would like to say a big thank you to Maurice for giving up his time and for teaching the children about Hanukkah.
