Hanukkah Gift Ideas that Give Back

Although December is the season when children get excited about receiving gifts, it’s also a perfect time to teach kids the importance of giving back. As a rising tide of conflict – from Africa to the Middle East – forces families from their homes, this holiday season is a necessary time to remember children and families around the world who face unimaginable circumstances. 

Many Jewish communities designate one night of Hanukkah as a night to give back. Talking about the causes you care about and humanitarian crises around the world can also teach children that the holidays are about helping others in need.
