Chanukah was in full swing at in December.
That sentiment was especially true during the "Chanukah Wonderland," an extravaganza that drew more than 400 adults and children on Dec. 25
In the social hall, children were treated to Chanukah crafts of sand art and dreidle-shaped cookie decorating. Face painters were hard at work drawing menorahs and Maccabees onto the smiling little faces. Judaica and gifts were for sale by Judaica of Great Neck. The food court offered a full array of delicious foods including Chanukah delicacies such as jelly donuts and hot potato latkes. At the center of it all, little ones built what later became a 10-foot menorah constructed from hundreds of Leggo pieces.
And in the new gymnasium, performers entertained children and adults alike. During an Olive Oil Workshop, children helped squeeze olives to make oil to light the menorah. At the grand finale, the Small Wonder Puppet Theater recounted the Chanukah story, followed by the lighting of the Leggo Menorah and the singing of holiday songs.
