Chanukah Play

Too cute for words. Watch a group of 5 year-olds re-enact this drama of struggle and redemption, the story of Chanukah.

My daughter Sh’Khinah is in Kindergarten and watched the production she said, “ How did they remember all the story, they are amazing”
Thank you for inspiring my little girl- Well done Reply

MTo all of you who have enjoyed this video:
This was filmed over 20 years ago the children are all in there late twenties today. I believe it was produced by a Shemtov from Philadelphia.
It was redone in Frankfurt Germany about five years ago but the language is German. Reply

So cute! I thoroughly enjoyed this presentation. Would it be possible to add the words being said to the bottom of the screen? A lot of it can not be understood. Happy Chanukah! Reply

bravo Bravo to the "story teller" narrator!! Of course, all of the "actors" were wonderful. But, I'd like to know, is the narrator headed for the rabbinate or Broadway?? He's adorable and memorized the whole least, that's what it looked like to me. Bravo to the entire cast and the director, producer, costume designers, set designers,sound technicians, etc, etc Reply

Oldie but a goodie! Still as adorable as when it was created but quite a few of the actors are married now. Sorry Laz but this video is about twenty years old, you'll have to get other kinderlach. Reply

Gifts I agree 100% with the comment posted by "Kayla". Everything else was very nice, and the narrator was especially cute, but the statement about 'gifts' being a part of Chanukah, is just wrong. It's gelt, not gifts. Do we really need to follow the customs of others? No! Reply

So cute How did these little kids learn such a long and complicated script?

I agree with Kayla - why does it say "most important are the gifts"? The gifts are least important, if they are given at all.

I plan to show this to my 3-year-old to teach her about Chanuka, but I will have to stop it before that line! We don't give gifts on Chanuka. Reply

Very helpful and useful! Thank you so much for this video. It really helped me teach the story of Chanukah to my young students. It was fun, it was scary, and best of all-informative.

Thank you actors, teachers and! Reply
