A Chanukah ASL ABC Story

A bit of explanation... an ABC story, in ASL, is an artform where a story is told with each word taking the handshape of the next letter. Like making up a story in alphabetical order ("a bad cat ditched every frugal dog"), but with way more freedom of expression in the handshapes of the letters, it's a cross between storytelling and dance. Can you find all the handshapes???

I love it when my fascination with Judaism and my fascination with ASL intersect!!!  If you do, too, be sure to check out all of JewishDeafMM’s videos for parsha, holiday thoughts, and more.
