NEW! Chanukah / Hanukkah / Festival of Lights / חֲנֻכָּה Lapbook!

lapbook collage 
This NEW complete Chanukah lapbook PDF includes 19 fabulous mini-books (as seen in the sneak-preview collage above), a 9-page teaching guide, plus three pages of clip art (2 pages are original, hand-drawn by my talented husband Ted!).  There are activities for a range of ages, which makes it great for families with more than one child – or just skip the more advanced components until your child is older.  The only foldable I’d consider at all difficult is the “Candlelighting Brachot” circle book.  There are diagrams in the PDF, but I will provide step-by-step photo instructions if anybody needs them.  Finally, by popular demand, I have used entirely “Sefardi” Hebrew transliterations throughout this project PDF.
Visit my CurrClick products page to buy it.  (if I’ve promised you a free one, I will send it along in the next day or two)

Ancient Auction Secret: If Chinese auctions are racist, why do Jews love them so much?

Ah, Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews.  You sure do love your Chinese auctions, don’t you? It seems that even in an era of political correctness, within certain circles, this term just will not die . And frankly, I’m mortified. I’m not Chinese, but I have family who is Chinese.  Some are Korean, as well.  I guess this makes us more ethnically diverse than many Jews, but I suspect most Jewish families are moving in this direction.  Still.  Even if we don’t know a single Chinese person, we should still stop calling it that. First of all… is it actually racist to call it a Chinese auction? I figured I’d let Chinese people decide.  But when I turned to Google to find out how Chinese people feel about Chinese auctions, what I found was mostly… nothing.  Silence.  I did find some debate (presumably among non-Chinese people) over whether it was too far in the direction of political correctness to refer to these as a “silent auction” or (as in some parts of the States) a “tricky tray.”  (Ok
