Come and join us for a one-time class exploring the most well-known Jewish holiday: Hanukkah. Through a combination of lectures, videos, and discussion students will learn the exciting story of Judah Maccabee and how his band of small fighters took down the much larger Seleucid army. Discover the difference between a Menorah and a Chanukkiah. Find out which common Hanukkah tradition is just a reflection of being near Christmas. Take a spin at the popular game Dreidel and see what donuts have...
I hold a Master of Arts in Jewish Education which has included advanced Hebrew language study as well as courses in teaching and curriculum development. I have been celebrating Hanukkah for over 30 years and have been teaching all about it for over 10.
No additional materials are needed for class, but students are welcome to bring their favorite dreidel or Chanukkiah/Menorah to share with the class as time allows.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This is a secular class. We are studying the celebration of the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah from an academic perspective. However, we will be touching on one of the reasons the holiday is celebrated (which is considered to be miraculous among believing Jews) as well as indicate which of the observances are religious (the lighting of the candles and blessings recited) versus traditional in nature (eating of potato pancakes) as well as how they are completed. No student will be asked to identify or participate in any religious rights or activities.
