Hanukkah party for school 144 students
One of the customs of the holiday is upbringing.

And its task is to do everything possible so that both children and adults do not forget about the mercy of the Almighty shown to the Jewish people and fulfill his commandments. This was the key theme of our holiday for students of school 144, our children proved to themselves that they are real warriors of light!

The Rebbe asked in the year of Hakel to gather all the Jews together.
We wanted to show the children that everyone can bring light into the world with their good deeds, but doing it together is much more pleasant and better.

We treated each other with donuts, gave cards, said psukim and tegilim. For this, everyone received their portion of gold, which was supposed to fill one large common lamp. All the children were imbued with the idea of unification and, of course, we managed to achieve the goal very quickly.

Parents, teachers, and most importantly children were happy! Everyone left with a good mood and a Hanukkah gift!

Party for children "8 candle"

At our Sunday meeting on the last day of the holiday, we also added some light, warmth and kindness to this world!

How? We learned to do good deeds, to give joy and to warm with warmth!

They also made Hanukkah crafts and gifts for each other and, of course, treated themselves to donuts!

We wish everyone that the light that Hanukkah gave us would drive away the darkness and warm us all.
