On Sunday, December 4, more than 200 people attended Bi-Cultural Day School’s first-ever Sesame Street Chanukah Hullabaloo, a program for families with young children from birth to six years old. The two-hour, free-of-charge event included a line-up of child-friendly activities and holiday-themed entertainment, including food, crafts, balloon and face-painting artistry and a Chanukah-themed treasure hunt. In addition, Temple Sholom’s cantor, Asa Fradkin, performed holiday songs; Connecticut author Tracy Newman signed books and provided each family with a complimentary copy of her book Hanukkah is Coming, and Sesame Street character Elmo led children in a sing-along and parade.
