Holding the Dark with the Light: A Hadar Hanukkah Companion
As children, we learn to be afraid of the dark. We learn to associate darkness with the unknown, monsters under the bed, and shadows that loom eerily out of proportion. But what if we could hold the darkness as we hold the light? What if this year, when we light the candles of our hanukiyah, we admire not only the light of the fire but acknowledge the place of the darkness? As your candles burn and you hold both light and darkness, gather yourself and your loved ones, and make space in your home for a little learning.
With a kid-oriented and engaging design, this resource is intended for use with children and families for learning and discussion as you celebrate Hanukkah at home. Use this resource every night of Hanukkah, along with activities designed by Pedagogy of Partnership, to guide your learning as a family.
