Students Host Annual Interfaith Holiday Party

Mikayla Kimel '15
JCHS recently hosted its annual Interfaith Holiday Party this past week.  Over one hundred kids from all over the western addition attended along with twenty JCHS students.

The JCHS Holiday Party was the most successful one yet! Putting together this party was so rewarding, because I got to see JCHS students really come together as a community and tell the story of Hanukkah to kids that may never have had the opportunity to hear it before.  After telling the stories of Hanukkah, Christmas and Kwanzaa, JCHS students were fortunate enough to be able to talk one on one with some of the kids.  During this time they were engaged in teaching our young visitors how to play the dreidel game. Other activities included making holiday cards and decorating gingerbread men.  It was an enjoyable experience for everyone and a great community service opportunity.  The holiday party was a great success and I can’t wait for next year!
