Intro Class, 5th Night of Chanukah

The final meeting of the Fall session of Intro fell on the 5th night of Chanukah, so I invited the class to bring their own chanukiot to class. (Thank you, Lisa Hanauer, for the great suggestion.)

We sang the blessings, then paused for a quick class photo with the glowing candles, before we turned the lights back on to learn.

I was still glowing on the drive home – what a lovely, lovely memory of a wonderful group of students!

  1. What a beautiful and meaningful way to celebrate even a minor Holiday! The photo leaves me glowing too! This is an idea I will borrow for my family’s Hanukkah party next year! I love the idea!!!
