JEWISH HOLIDAYS ARE THE CORNERSTONE OF JEWISH LIFE.
The Chagim (Holidays) are a major focus at Chai Hebrew and are always preceded with projects, crafts, and carnivals. Your child will have fun learning about the Holidays and come home excited to celebrate and share their beautiful stories, songs and messages.
There’s always a fun and creative program leading up to each Jewish Holiday and celebration, and every year we introduce something new. Shabbat learning comes to life with an exuberant Shabbat dinner and spirited Havdallah service. Chanukah will see us creating a creative Menorah craft or frying latkes. Tu B’shvat could be celebrated with a “Chopped” style culinary competiton or an edible food craft. Purim might bring a Hamantash Bake-off or costume party. Passover learning may include a Model Matzah Bakery, creative Seder plate craft or chocolate Seder.
Beyond the Chai Hebrew class setting, we host incredible community Jewish holiday events and family celebrations that bring our learning and heritage to life. From a Sukkot Street Fair, Public Menorah lightings and Chanukah extravaganzas, a Grand Purim party & masquerade, Lag B’omer BBQ, and a hearty Shavuot ice cream party – our events are heartwarming community celebrations.
