The Finished Product

We also studied the Jewish Holiday of Hanukah. We learned about the story of the

Maccabees and their fight for freedom against the Palestinians. We made menorahs

using oil pastels to celebrate the Miracle of the Oil and we made and played

dreidel, a game Jewish children play at Hanukah.
