The Jewish holiday of Hanukkah is Dec. 7–15 this year, and that means eight beautiful nights celebrating the miracle of the Maccabees, lighting the menorah and, well, figuring out what to do to build your family’s own special traditions.
If it feels like Hanukkah snuck right up on you, or you’re trying out leading a night of celebrating on your own for the first time, this holiday “cheat sheet” supplies parents and kids with a storybook to read each night of Hanukkah, a gift idea to make or exchange, a recipe to cook together and more. You’ll also find a virtual “Get Togethers” section to help you share the holiday from afar.
