Chanukah was celebrated in three parts at the High School. Individual class parties took place
at school or in teachers' homes. The school
Chagigah began in the evening with "Soup & Salad" and a panel discussion on the subject of "The Power of One", this year's production theme. Panelists were Mrs. Chanie Hendler of the High School, Mrs. Gitti Horowitz of the Middle School, and Mrs. Jacquelyn Sova of Bnos Yisroel. The program continued the next morning with a video and lively dancing. Our Sign Language Classes proudly offered presentations at the program, signing "Oh Chanukah, Oh Chanukah" and other songs.
