A gathering of the youth and their families for SJYC’s annual Chanukah party went with a swing last night, organised by Barry Jacobs, the Youth Co-ordinator.

Firstly the children made Chanukiot (menorahs) with Yael Bebb from air-drying clay. These menorahs should be dry and ready in time for lighting on first night!

Afterwards, everyone sat down to food made by the older children, there was sushi, koftes (fried of course) in pitta, salads and doughnuts and icecream! Big thanks to David Law from the shop for teaching the children how to cook over the last term.

The night ended with a glow-stick disco and then Rabbi Hyman handed out goody-bags donated by Marilyn and Stephen Salt.
