  • Teaching Chanukah

    Living in Los Angeles, we’re not unusual in being an interfaith family. Like many of our friends, we celebrate both Chanukah and Christmas. Fortunately, someone recommended a board book called The Story of Chanukah, which we are going to use to teach our children about this holiday when they (or at least Alex) is a little older. While the book naturally includes the story of how one day’s worth of oil lasted for eight days, it also details how the Maccabees defeated the Syrians. And as Marc often reminds me, Chanukah would be a very cool holiday, at least for boys, if the emphasis were on the vanquishing of the enemies instead of the lasting of the oil.

    Happy Chanukah!
