DAY 162: Hanukkah @ Barnes and Noble

Dear Hevreh,

Well, it’s official.  Beth Mordecai has successfully invaded Barnes and Noble!  In partnership with PJ Library of Middlesex Federation and Barnes and Noble of Menlo Park, we had a wonderful event with crafts, songs, and Hanukkah stories.  There were 7-8 families who had their kids take part in the event (for a total of around 10 kids), many of whom are currently unaffiliated.  One family is already planning on coming to the Hanukkah party and another expressed great interest in our Hebrew School program called Project Jewish Living.  We will be following up with the families in the next couple of days, but most importantly we provided them with a positive Jewish experience that shared the light of this beautiful holiday.

Now I’m off to a Hanukkah party hosted by the Grubers to share more of the joy of the holiday.  If you are interested in having me stop by your family parties to recite the blessings, tell Hanukkah stories, or sing songs, please let me know.  Otherwise, I’ll see you at our Hanukkah party (and other Hanukkah events)
