Mr. Russell's 5th Class enjoyed Dreidel and Hanukkah as they took part in the Dreidelympics on December 5th, 2018!
The boys learned about the war between the Jews and the Syrians, and how oil that was only enough to last one day, lasted for eight whole days. They learned the Hebrew phrases, "Nes Gadol Hayah Sham" which means "a great miracle happened there", and "Nes Gadol Hayah Po" which means "a great miracle happened here", which is what is said when in Israel, as that is where the miracle happened. The class also learned about the menorah and how to play Dreidel, as well as the dreidel song!
After all that, the class joined Mr. Auslander's class in Indiana USA, Steve and his daughter in South Africa, and Liat's class in Israel -
