Menorah fully litDid you know that your students can develop and strengthen their independent learning skills by using Sefaria? This ready-to-go activity, designed for middle school students, combines learning about Chanukah candle lighting and studying some of its Rabbinic sources.

Lighting the Chanukiya is one of the major mitzvot of Chanukah. Why do we do it? How do we do it? How can Sefaria help us to find information about the Chanukiya?

In this lesson, student partners prepare and record an interview with a Chanukiya which can be shared with others.
