“When we’re spinning our dreidels with family and friends…And hoping this wonderful time never ends…Hanukkah is here!”
As winter approaches, that means a very special holiday is around the corner. Children wait in anticipation and parents put up decorations. Families gather to sing, pray and celebrate Hanukkah.
