Happy Hanukkah!

I am one quarter Jewish. My mama is half Jewish, my grandpa is 100%. My family isn't very religious, but we do celebrate Hanukkah each year, and I know the prayer in Hebrew!

Here it is:
Baruch ata Adonai, Elohenu melech ha-olam
Asher kideshanu be-mitzvosav, ve-tzivanu
le-hadlikner shel Hanukkah

Tomorrow I'm going to learn how to make latkes for the first time, and each night I light the menorah. On the last night of Hanukkah Daddy says I can open one present. I hope it is the Playmobil pirate ship!

Oooh Oooh Violence! You look so beautiful! And I have the very same, same dress!

Happy Hanukkah! Did you know that lots of Jewish people came to live in Siberia because Stalin tried to convince them it was more awesome there?

Also! I hope you get the pirate ship too. I got it this summer, so maybe we can have pirate battles together!

Oh yes, I remember your pirate ship, it is totally awesome! That is why I want one. My uncle had a Playmobil pirate ship when he was a little boy too! It will be fun to battle!

Ooh, cool! Missy's Catholic but not very religious but she said a Jewish girl our size will be coming to live with us this summer probably and her name's Gabriella Starlight Cohen. I hope she comes-I'd love to learn more about Hanukkah.
