Happy Festival of Lights

When I got married, I brought the tradition of celebrating a Christian version of passover to my husband. ( I first attended a Jewish passover in college and loved it. Two years later, my Methodist church started a hosting passover feast on Good Thursday & I was hooked. Learning more about the jewish roots of our faith makes things "click" with me).

My kids have learned so much about the story of Moses through our passover, that I decided to add Chanukah and Purium festivals this year. This website is a great, kid-friendly introduction to all the major Jewish festivals. We'll be playing the dreidel game with peanuts as "gelt" today.
