Celebrating Chanukah with Purple Mash

Dec. 5, 2019

The Jewish holiday Hanukkah, or Chanukah, runs this year from Sunday, 22nd December to Monday, 30th December. The holiday remembers a period in history over 2000 years ago when a king called Antiochus banned the Jewish people at the time from worshipping God and set his armies up to destroy the holiest of Jewish buildings; the Temple.

Here at 2Simple, we are celebrating Chanukah using Purple Mash. We have several resources for you to use in your classrooms to celebrate this holiday.
