This year is historical. It is the first time in our lifetime, and the last, we are celebrating Thanksgiving and the first day of Chanukah together, calling it Thanukkah. This phenomenon will not ever be repeated again because of the disparity between the Gregorian solar calendar and the Hebrew lunar calendar. This is a unique opportunity to celebrate the Jewish culture and history along with the history of the nation in which we live.

At The Epstein School, young TK (Transitional Kindergarten) students have spent time reflecting on the many things they are thankful for. They shared with us what is on their mind: Brady – “My mommy because she gives me hugs.” Alex – “My brother because he lets me come up to his room.” Jonah – “Ice cream because it tastes good!” Dylan – “My dog because he sleeps with me.” Seth– “My brother because he lets me flip on him.” Ariela- “My dad because he lifts me up to the ceiling!”  [/emember_protected]
