As each of us gather around our
we sing songs, sometimesplay games, exchange gifts, eat great foods, and just admire the beau-tiful light of the burning candles. This year, let’s add another dimen-sion of meaning to the experience of lighting
candles by par-ticipating in this wonderful project called “
Bring Light to the Night.
”The idea of the project is to add a
family learning component
to yourcelebration of this holiday. In order to facilitate that, I have compileda brief learning sheet to study on each night of
. The point isto spend time with whomever lives in your home to learn and discussJewish texts and ideas and answer some serious and some not so seri-ous questions. Each night’s learning activity is centered around thetheme of “Light” and its many facets in Jewish Law and Jewish Philoso-phy. The sheets have something to offer people of all ages.Each night, as a family, you can submit the answer to one or more ofthe questions on that night’s sheet. Each submitted answer entitles you to one entry in a
to win one of 3 wonderful prizes!!Just email your answers each night to email@example.comThe project will culminate in our
on Friday eve-ning December 18th (the last night of
) where we will study alltogether as a community and enjoy some games, singing, great food,and the announcements of the winners of the raffle (see registrationsheet for details). We will be joined by 8 students from Yeshiva Uni-versity as part of the Torah Tours program who will be there to addtheir special touch to our celebration.
I Look forward to your participation!!
