Let’s Visit an Oil Rig

Sara Miriam Gross

What was the main Chanukah miracle? That a little bit of pure olive oil, enough to keep the flames in the menorah of the Beis HaMikdash burning for one day, burned for eight whole days. Today, we’ll explore a place that’s full of a very different kind of oil. We’re going to visit an oil rig. Put on your special safety boots, thick raincoat, sturdy clothing, hard hat, and safety goggles and away we go!

Fire in Many Forms

Rhona Lewis

The colored candles in the menorah are flickering. The wicks in the little glasses of olive oil are burning brightly. The latkes are sizzling in a frying pan heated by strong blue flames of gas. Fire is fascinating in all forms. Let’s take a look at some of them.
