PTTS Hebrew School Hanukkah Fest

Sunday, December 17, 11:00AM

For children and their parents.

While many Jews celebrate Hanukkah by eating potato pancakes, deep fried in oil in remembrance of the miracle of the oil, here at Shearith Israel we honor the tradition of Amsterdam by eating vaffele (waffles) because God made a "miracle and wonder" (Hebrew: "nes va-fe'le") during these days.  And after all, everyone loves a good waffle!   Please join PTTS and CSI youth for Hanukkah festivities, songs and of course, delicious waffles.
