FRIDAY, DECEMBER 28, 1990

he fifth grade class at
Akiva Hebrew Day
School presented The
Menorah of Courage to par-
ents and students on Dec.
19. Shoshana Ben-Ozer, a
Hebrew teacher at Akiva,
wrote the two-act play that
depicts acts of bravery on
Chanukah.
"The play had special
meaning for the new Ameri-
cans Darya Faytlin and
Natalia Pinkhasov ," said
Ms. Ben-Ozer. The two
students emigrated from the
Soviet Union last year and
are both enjoying their
American school where they
learn Hebrew and English.
The first act of the play re-
counts the story of "Hannah
and her Seven Sons" in the
holy Temple in Jerusalem.
In the second act, the spirits
of her family return to
relight the Chanukah meno-
rah. Each candle represents
a special act of courage.
"The spirits come alive
and find bravery and
courage," said student
Michal Hochbaum.

"A pilot risks her life for a
friend," said student
Georgette Kleiman.
Some of the other fifth
grade students are: Shlomo
Abrams, Yitzhak Elb-
inger, Ami Flatt, Tamar
Kantor, Cheryl Miller,
Jonathan Miller,
Jonathan Nussbaum,
Rivka Rabinowitz,
Shimon Schon, Barbara
Segalbaum, Amy Singal,
Joshua Skarf, Meir Skoc-
zylas, Netanya Weiss and
David Wokinson. Third-
grader Elana Rybak sang
in the play while her mom
played piano. Rabbi Avi

NOSH AND DRASH
Adat Shalom's Monday
evening nosh and drash
class went back in time this
Chanukah for a press con-
ference with Judah the Mac-
cabee.
The subject of the evening
was journalism with guest
speaker Kimberly Lifton
of The Jewish News. Ms. Lif-
ton gave the 40 students a
Chanukah fact sheet
disguised as a press release.
_Brian Vieder, grandson of
Cantor larry Vieder, read
the release. Rabbi Efry
Spectre played the role of
Judah and was asked to an-
swer questions.
Then the students learned
how to write a newspaper
lead. Rochelle Broder , 16,
of North Farmington High
School, came up with a
clever lead:
"We went to war to defend
our country," Judah the
Maccabee passionately in-
formed the country in an of-
ficial speech today. His
speech marked the end of a
three-year battle between
the 10,000 member Mac-
cabee army and the
65,000-person Syrian-Greek
army.
Some of the other students
were: Kim Rubin, Leah
Barenholz, David Simmer
and Brad Goldsmith.
