What do the candles represent and what is a dreidel? Candles, dreidels and even fried foods are all important parts of the Jewish festival of lights, Chanukah! This year, Chanukah, which is celebrated over 8 nights, will begin in late November.

The Sydney Jewish Museum invites your primary students to a complimentary live and interactive Chanukah workshop, facilitated by a Museum Educator. This 45-minute online program will introduce students to the traditions and symbolism associated with this important festival.

During the workshop, students will:

  1. Discover what Chanukah is and why it is celebrated.
  2. Learn what foods are traditionally eaten and why.
  3. Uncover the meaning of lighting candles.
  4. Engage in a craft activity to make a dreidel.

You will need:

  1. Our worksheet (emailed to you upon registration)
  2. A piece of paper and a pair of scissors
