On the second night of Hanukkah, the Rosh Hodesh committee held a family event for parents and their children. The room was abuzz with activity and the excitement of children and parents.
The kids celebrated Hanukkah in the traditional way by lighting their menorahs, singing Hanukkah songs, playing dreidel, and eating jelly-filled doughnuts.
But this time, they also got involved in a tzedakah (charity) project.
About twenty pillowcases decorated by the children, and the parents who couldn't resist picking up color pencils also, were filled with stuffed animals, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes and lotion.
The stuffed pillowcases will be donated to the Community Opportunity Center in Tarrytown, and kids there will receive the bags during a holiday party.
