This past weekend was not yet Hanukkah, but we had two celebrations to attend! The first was at our synagogue, and then later on, we went to Spin 1000 at the Jewish Community Center. This was in part a celebration to try to break the world record for spinning the most dreidels in one place at the same time!
The boy in the red and grey stripes is Zachary! At the first celebration, we started out by decorating cookies.
There were dreidels and latkes.
Then Simon’s class sang and Zachary’s did a play! Simon was so cute because at first he did not want to participate, but then he got brave and did!
At Spin 1000, Gabbie’s Performance Team danced.
Simon met Latke the Lion.
Zachary searched the Israel map, then the kids enjoyed meeting the puppets from the Herschel and the Hanukkah Goblins play. Simon thought they were hilarious!
Next it was time to spin the dreidels!
Stay tuned for another Hanukkah themed post later in the holiday! Happy Hanukkah to those who are celebrating!
