Chanukah art


The Jewish News received an amazing 207 entries in its first-ever
Chanukah Art contest. Students from Jewish schools throughout the
metropolitan Detroit area entered their art work, giving our
illustrious panel of Jewish News staffers difficult choices in selecting
the winners.
Contest entries included pen-and-ink drawings, paper collages,
penciled works, lots of crayon, and paintings. The "winners" on these
pages represents only a small sampling of the rich and varied
Chanukah offerings of our Detroit area youngsters, and in several
cases beautiful works were passed over as winners only because of
concerns that their colors would not reproduce in The Jewish News.
Although we could not reproduce all the entries in the
newspaper, United Hebrew Schools has graciously asked to mount an
exhibition of all the entries. The entries will be hung on Sunday in
the new foyer display area at the UHS main building on 12 Mile
Road. The exhibition will be on display for up to three or four weeks
to give the entire community an opportunity to view the creativity of
our youngsters.
Our young artists who submitted stamped, self-addressed
envelopes will have their entries returned to them at the conclusion
of the public exhibition by United Hebrew Schools.

Yonason Carmen

age 13
Yeshivath Beth Yehudah

Yonason is a ninth
grader at the yeshivah
who loves to draw. "I do
it whenever I can," he
told The Jewish News,
"whenever I have the
free time." Free time
seems to be a problem for
Yonason, with his busy
scholastic load at the
yeshivah. Asked if he
had ever taken art
classes, he said that he
once took a class for two
days, but had to quit. "I
didn't have enough free
time," he said.
His stylish, winning
entry at left includes the
Hebrew words
symbolized on the
dreidel: net gadol hayah
shem — A great miracle
happened there..
