Educational resources about Chanukah and over 800 Chanukah videos


Hi Everyone!

Chanukah, the Jewish Festival of Lights, is observed for
eight days, beginning on the evening of the 25th day of
the Hebrew month of Kislev. This year Chanukah starts
Sunday night, December 22, 2019.

Chanukah is a wonderful holiday of renewed dedication,
faith, hope and spiritual light. It's a holiday that says:
"Never lose hope." Chanukah commemorates the victory of a
small band of Maccabees over the pagan Syrian-Greeks who
ruled over Israel.

The Chanukah Page includes lesson sites in several languages,
videos, songs, Chanukah trivia quiz, English Hebrew vocabulary lists,
recipes, games, humor, photos, clipart, coloring pages and
a map of the sites of the Maccabees 166-161 BCE.

The address is:
https://jr.co.il/hotsites/chanukah.htm

The Chanukah Video Page has links to over 800
cool Chanukah videos:
https://jr.co.il/videos/chanukah-videos.htm

The video page will be updated as we get closer to Chanukah.
Suggestions for new video additions are welcome.

Enjoy!

Please share these holiday resources. Thank You!

Shabbat Shalom,
Jacob

Photos of Chol HaMoed Sukkot in Jerusalem


Hi Everyone!

Today, Wednesday October 16 - Chol HaMoed Sukkot, I went to Jerusalem to enjoy the chag and to take photos.
I started with the Jerusalem Light Rail Sukkah at Ammunition Hill and then I went to the large Sukkah at
City Hall in Kikar Safra. I continued my walk to the "World Taste Festival" that is taking place along the outside wall of the old city.
From there I walked through Mamila Mall and then to Yaffo Street. At Kikar Tzion I walked up Ben Yehuda Street and I enjoyed the free entertainment on each block. It was really nice. Kol Hakavod to the mayor and city staff for an enjoyable day.

I posted the photos at:

I also copied the photos to a Facebook album at:
