In Celebration of Hanukkah Miracles

December 13, 2021 by Deborah Skolnick-Einhorn (Faculty and Staff)

This year for Hanukkah, miracles have been abundant. Milton ran one of its four vaccine clinics on the fourth day of Hanukkah. What better way to celebrate a holiday about redemption and rededication? The parents were giddy, saying this was the best Hanukkah present they could receive. Kids were eager to plan a long-awaited playdate or trip. We shared brachot – from the expected shehecheyanu to contemporary blessings written just for this occasion – to elevate this as a sacred experience, an opportunity for students to protect themselves and their community.

Throughout the week, our campuses were filled with Hanukkah cheer, including kids and adults decked out in their holiday finest and silliest. We are so deeply grateful for the mundane this year – for being able to sing together or to distribute gelt – each of these a small miracle with great resonance.

Enjoy some photos and videos from these daily Milton miracles and get a taste of the sweetness.

Thank you to all the grandparents and friends who tuned in for a joyful online Share the Nachas! We were wowed by Middle School students Isaac Y. and Meital H., who led a text study about tradition and obligation as it pertains to Hanukkah. We lit candles together, celebrated Milton Maccabees, waved to the Nachas Cam, and enjoyed an inspiring concert with Tel Aviv-based musical duo, Yonina.
