With Thanksgiving barely a week behind us and Chanukah just ending, it seems a particularly appropriate moment to reflect on this year’s most unusual juxtaposition of sacred and secular celebrations.

Of all the holidays in the Jewish calendar, Chanukah may be the one most beloved by children. It also provides one of the best opportunities for teaching children valuable lessons. Just ask Karin Hershkovitz-Kochavi, an immigrant from Israel, who, along with Denise Kornitz, founded the Yeladudes Theater last year to produce bilingual English-Hebrew shows for youth. Their new show, “The Chanukah Miracle,” helps children to draw from Jewish tradition in order to take charge of their own lives.
