Hello – my name is David, and I am learning a lot about Jewish Holidays in school. I wanted to write a blog so I can show my friends more about Jewish holidays that I celebrate. Being Jewish in Minnesota means that I need to explain why I light a menorah, or wear “that funny hat.” My friends are just teasing me but they weren’t being mean – they just don’t know what some of these symbols mean to us Jews. So I hope to enlighten them and inform anyone that is curious. I hope you enjoy it!
