In November or December each year, Jewish people around the world celebrate the eight days of Hanukkah. It commemorates the fight for religious freedom by the Maccabees against the Syrians more than 2,000 years ago. It also celebrates the miracle of the oil, which burned for eight days in the Holy Temple. The amazing thing is that everyone believed there was only enough oil to burn for one day!
The eight days of Hanukkah can be full of family, friends, food, and fun. You might be lighting the hanukkiah, spinning the dreidel, feasting on latkes, or singing “Maoz Tzur.” But somewhere among the festivities, you might like some quiet time alone to try your hand at a Hanukkah puzzle or two.
Included in The Everything® Kids' Hanukkah Puzzle and Activity Book are more than 100 different mazes, word searches, acrostics, rebuses, codes, and other types of puzzles. You'll also find games, activities, and crafts that are lots of fun to share with siblings, friends, cousins, aunts and uncles, and even grandmas and grandpas!
Do you have to be Jewish to enjoy this book? Absolutely not! Anyone interested in learning about this beautiful and holy celebration should grab a pen or pencil and start puzzling. We've included a sample puzzle to get you started.
