Community (and menorah) building in Trumbull

More than 150 children and their parents gathered at Home Depot in Trumbull on Sunday, Nov. 29, for a pre-Chanukah workshop that had them decorating menorahs, making olive oil and munching on ‘sufganiyot’ (jelly-filled donuts). “We wanted to do something cool and memorable that the kids would really enjoy,” said Rabbi Shlame Landa, director of Chabad of Fairfield, who organized the event that was hosted by Home Depot. Landa called it a “fun and interactive way to teach children about their tradition.” Those in attendance agreed. “This was our second year attending and our boys loved painting and decorating their own menorah to bring home and display during Chanukah,” said Melissa Katz of Trumbull, who participated in the workshop with her two sons. “This is a great event that brings the Jewish community together from all different towns.”
