Last week we were so lucky to have Deanna visit our school. She is a local Jewish lady who came into our school and spent some time with us talking about Hanukkah.
Deanna shared some lovely stories with us and explained how and why the Jewish people celebrate the Festival of Lights. We saw Deanna light the menorah and tell us why it has 9 candles.
We also had some traditional food that is eaten during this celebration, donuts and played with a dreidel.
