Its been a long week, but now I can finally say that my life is complete, thanks to the Chabad of West Hills, the Chabad of Woodland Hills and the New JCC at Milken…and also about 300 donuts.
Thanks for watching our Chanukah Special. Check out JewishJournal.com for more great videos and inspiring articles.

Throughout this week, I’ve made latkes (or at least attempted to), gone to school musicals and even mastered the art of the dreidel. Now, for the 7th day, its time to party, Chanukah style.

After the game, as always come light the Chanukah candles with us.
