Happy Chanukah - Celebrate your history

As you celebrate this holiday and light the candles each night, consider dedicating one night to honoring your own unique family history.

The child-centered holiday of Chanukah often brings together multiple generations. It offers a special opportunity to bring the younger generations into a discussion of family history, with input from grandparents and other relatives.

As part of your home celebration, talk about your family history and your ancestors' travels from other places to where you now live. Look at old family photos together, discuss the people pictured, where they lived, what happened to them and how they are related.

Never miss an opportunity to strengthen the family links which connect the past to the present to the future.
