22 Nov Shavei’s South American communities get ready for Hanukkah
While Hanukkah is approaching, Shavei Israel communities all over the world are getting ready for this beautiful holiday. The first ones to share their experience were communities of Chile and Colombia.
In Chile, people gather together for an inspirational day of studying the history of Hanukkah, its laws and customs, together with Rabbi Avraham Latapiat. The activities are being organized for participants of all ages: the kids’ programs in the local Talmud Torah include arts and crafts where they can create Hanukkah gifts and paintings.
In Baranquilla, Colombia, local children also participated in an amazing workshop where they learnt to make Hanukkah menorahs while studying with Yael Mendoza, Shavei Israel’s volunteer in the country.
