Happy Hanukkah!

By December 9, 2012

Follow me on:

What is Hannukah?  The word "Hanukka" means "dedication" and serves to remind Jews of the re-dedication of the Temple in Jerusalem. The lighting of the menorah for the eight days of Hannukah is a reminder of the miracle of the oil in the Temple of Jerusalem.

To celebrate the holiday, engage your child in some fun and creative Hannuka activities.   Lisa Katz has collected many other Hanukkah activities for kids that can help parents share the holiday with their children and help teach their child about the holiday. Parents can also find Hanukkah games, activities, songs, and stories on the chabad.org children's website.

And if you are looking for some gifts for your child, consider some Hannuka-themed toys.
