Sharing Chanukah

In what has become an annual tradition,
nearly 50 third grade Sunday school students
from Temple Beth El staged an hour-long
Chanukah party Dec. 14 for the residents of Pre-
ntis Manor, Jewish Home for the Aged.
The third graders have made Prentis Manor
their annual project for several years, and do
chores at home in advance of the party to earn
money for a gift for Prentis Manor. The students
also mailed hand-made Chanukah cards to the
Prentis residents in advance of the party.
The students led the residents in Chanukah
songs, sang the Chanukah blessings and led the
menorah-lighting ceremony before visiting indi-
vidually with the residents. "We like to go to

Prentis Manor because not as much is offered to
residents there because they are more in-
firm," said Flo Rita Bloch, grade three-five super-
visor at Beth El. "It has been a rewarding morn-
ing for the kids each year, and a lot of parents go
and join in the activity."
The participating Beth El students this year
were in the classes of Beverly Erlich, Carol Lak-
ritz and Elana Glasier.
Prentis Manor program directors Faye Adel-
son and Phyllis Kramer said the residents ap-
preciate the children's visit. "They love the kids,"
Kramer said. "They go up and shake hands, and
hug them. The touching and the contact means a
lot to the residents." 0
