Marcia Goldstein's Preschool Menorah that Never Grows Old

Like so many families with children who have been in Jewish pre-schools, we cherish a wood & bolt Hanukkiah our youngest child made while attending the Hasten Hebrew Academy Early Childhood Program. Each year we need to reattach many of the bolts; each year adds an additional layer of candle wax. Our family tradition is to cover our kitchen island with foil so that each member of the family can safely light their own Hanukkiah. And each year when our son, now 44 with two sons of his own, lights this menorah, it brings back warm memories of a little guy proudly bringing home his handmade Hanukkiah.
