Explore Ancient Greece and the origins of the Chanukah narrative through Torah text, prayer, objects and drama. This programme can be based either all at school or both at school and at a museum with Ancient Greek artefacts. Commencing with the investigation of some surprising Greek innovations and discoveries for example a baby’s potty, we question why life for the Jews at the time of Chanukah went rather pear shaped as they started adopting a more Greek lifestyle. This session concludes with the children having an opportunity to make there own ancient coins.
