Hanukkah Story Time at Barnes and Noble

This is what Hanukkah looks like in Morris County.  In the POURING rain, more than 75 children (and their families) showed up! We packed the children’s section. (My camera lens wasn’t wide enough to take it all in!) The children heard from 3 Morris County Rabbis, sang songs led by the Brody Center’s music teacher and learned all about Hanukkah. Everyone went home with a goody bag filled with information about our community, dreidels, gelt, instructions for playing dreidel and transliteration of the Hanukkah blessings. It was an incredible experience.
