Hanukkah Storytime + Sing-Along

Join us for an interactive Hanukkah storytime with two Sephardic children’s authors (one local, one world-renowned) as they share their Jewish Cuban family stories. Julie Anna Blank (“Hanukkah in Little Havana”) and Ruth Behar (“Tía Fortuna’s New Home: A Jewish Cuban Journey”) read their beautifully illustrated books for us. Then we’ll sing Hanukkah songs together, including Ladino/Sephardic favorite “Ocho Kandelikas.” You can also make a Hanukkah menorah out of snacks to enjoy during the event! Books make great Hanukkah presents, and the event is free with purchase.

In partnership with Jewish Book Council.
Sponsored by Samis Foundation.
