Macy's Celebrates Hanukkah in the Westfarms Mall CT

This year Macy's at the Westfarms Mall in CT teamed up with the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford to celebrate Hanukkah!

Macy's and Catherine, Risa, Alysa, and Anna from the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford were on hand and ready to welcome all attendees!

There was storytelling by the good folks at the Mandell JCC Family Room Library. Did you know about the PJ Library?  This program, free for the first year, offers families Jewish children's books and music. PJ Library reports that "this program is designed to give parents and children one of the most powerful and nurturing learning experiences - reading and listening to music together."

The children listened intently to the time honored tales that have been passed on from one generation to the next.

There was truly an afternoon of fun planned for everyone!


Fun balloon animals and designs

Cookie decorating by Tallulah's Catering was also a big hit!

There were beautiful beaded bracelets to make
