A new tradition! As part of the twinning projects between the young children of our partnership, we try to write together a new story for Hanukkah each year. Last year, the children of Akko started a story for Hanukkah and the American Kindergarten children from Akiba Academy in Dallas Texas, finished it. This year the American children wrote the first part and The Israeli children finished it
A story for Hanukkah Written by the children of “Akiba” Academy in Dallas Texas And the children of “Parpar” class in Akko-Israel Hanukkah-2008 Edit by; Limore Simchi Efrat Srebro and Elizabeth.R. Morris
Now let us see the end of the story: Limore Simchi, the teacher of “Parpar” class in Akko told her class the story that came from “Akiba” and they continued the play…
The children from Akiba Academy of Dallas asked the magic oil Jug to take them to their friends from “Parpar “ class in Akko. The jug fulfilled the mission successfully and the Akiba’s children were immediately transported to Akko. When they met with “Parpar” children they told them what happened and said: “If we give our magic Jug to the Maccabim, we would never be able to go home again.On the other hand, if we do not give it to them, Hanukkah miracle would not happen.” The children of “Parpar” thought about it and said: “The Maccabim could not use your jug of oil anyway because it had already been opened. The Cohen in the temple is only allowed to light the Menorah with pure oil from a jug that is sealed and is kept for the purpose of lighting the Menorah.” said the “Parpar” children. “So, we can not help the Maccabim?” asked the “Akiba children sadly and added:" We really want to help them make a miracle” “Do not worry” said the children of “Parpar” class, “You are our friends and we will find a solution for you. We will make new pure olive oil for you to take to the Maccabim”
The children of “Parpar” class remembered that they had an old olive tree in their class yard. They went out quickly with long sticks in their hand. “Why do you take those long sticks” asked the Akiba children” “When we want to pick the olives we have to hit the tree with a stick, that how it has been done for years” said the “Papar” children The “Parpar” children start hitting the tree and a lot of olives fall on the ground. Our olive tree
It seems enough olives for making new olive oil ….
We start smashing the olives with special tools for making oil.
“Look” said the children of “Parpar” class ”We manufactured a lot of olive oil and we put it in a small jug for you to take to Jerusalem”
“Thank you so much for helping us help the “Maccabim” said “Akiba” children “Your welcome” said “Parpar” children” Let us hope that in the future we will be able to cooperate and do more things together for others” Suddenly there was a big light….
The Akiba” children went back to the temple in Jerusalem, gave the jug of oil to the Maccabim. The Maccabim thanked the children and suddenly there was a big light…
The children of “Akiba” found themselves on the beach with a simple pottery jug that reminded them of their journey with the magical golden jug
