The rabbis often compare the Torah and study to light.  A small light dispels total darkness.  One small flame can ignite many others.  Fire illuminates but must be handled responsibly.  This Hannukah we've highlighted links to some websites we use in our own homes, with our own families, links that illuminate our lives.  This year as the candles of our hannukiot burn, may we add to that light with study, a good book, a fun game, and learning for the entire family.  


If you have a favorite resource to share, please email us back so we can include it in our ever-growing online Toolkit.


We'll send another message with any additional links we collect next week to our network of Bay Area Jewish educators through our email listserv, EduList.  If you are an educator, but are not already signed up, please register today!  Otherwise, bookmark our DIY Holiday Guide.  Either way, read on for resources.

Chag sameach!
