On our first Monday back after Thanksgiving, Mika’s family joined us to share the Hanukkah story and their Hanukkah traditions.  Mika showed us her menorah and then we made our own menorah with the children in the class as the candle holders.  Mika was in charge of the shamas candle.  We sang Mika’s favorite Hanukkah song played with dreidels and then ate latkes with applesauce and sour cream for snack.

Many thanks to the Gilat family!
