Here are some great resources we'd like to share to help you with preparing and creating your own Hanukah:
A friend of Kolot has written to suggest that this year, in the midst of so much economic hardship, we think about giving gifts of friendship and time, rather than things. One thing you can give is a new children’s book to the children of the Church of Gethsemane, our landlord. . They should be unwrapped, but you and your child can write in them a brief greeting to the child who will receive it. Bring the books to Gethsemane Monday through Thursday 9 to 5 and tell them you are from Kolot Chayeinu.
