Preschool Prepares for Chanukah

There probably are very few things that tots enjoy more than eating challah. So it was a special treat that the children of the JCC North Preschool prepared Chanukah-themed challah. Teacher Stephanie Robinson and Halle Schwartz, JCC director of Children, Youth, Teens and Camping, collaborated on the Judaic lesson for the class of two-year-olds. Pictured above, left to right, are Preston Haimbaugh, Rafi Rush, Sylvia Ames, John Baruth, and Jordan Crichfield with their challah menorah. The children made chanukiot out of challah dough, and dreidels out of clay.

The JCC North Preschool, located at 1985 Swansford Dr., Dublin, is one of three preschools operated by the JCC. It is joined by the JCC New Albany Preschool, 150 E. Granville Rd., and the JCC College Avenue Preschool at 1125 College Ave. Enrollment for the 2012-2013 school year will begin in February.
