Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, began November 28 and ends the evening of December 6. The Jewish festival commemorates the recovery of Jerusalem and rededication of the Second Temple at the beginning of the Maccabean revolt in the 2nd century. The menorah was put up in Bolles Hall on the Bolles Upper School San Jose Campus to honor families celebrating the occasion. Students in Jaime Swartz’s second grade classroom started the week talking about the holiday and playing dreidel games. Activities like this that provide lessons and perspective for students are ongoing throughout the week on all campuses. Happy Hanukkah to all who celebrate! May your candles burn bright this season.
