The Beth Sholom youth department, under its new youth director, Moshe Cohen, held a unique interactive Chanukah event as the participants said their final goodbyes to an amazing Chanukah.
First, the kids had the opportunity to fill and decorate their own sufganiot. Of course the kids came up with some amazing and delicious combinations, which would make any dentist proud. Musical IQ then treated them to a unique interactive drum experience, where the kids participated in Drum Tales, an interactive musical story of Chanukah. Each child had their own drum, which they were taught how to play and add in their own feelings and emotions into the story.
The program ended with raffles for various prizes, including Nets tickets and gift certificates to our favorite stores on Central Avenue. Matthew Jedwab, a fifth-grader at HAFTR, won one of the gift certificates. In one of the more touching acts of kindness, Matthew decided he wanted his prize to be sent to children from Sandy Hook Elementary. v
