Since Sunday, scores of shoppers in West Bloomfield's Orchard Mall were treated to the sights and sounds of Chanukah Wonderland, virtual Chanukah experience for children, teens and adults.
That included the dozens of third graders from Hillel Day School in Farmington Hills, and their parent chaperones, who took a special field trip Wednesday morning. Students ate traditional sufganiot, decorate wooden dreidels and other crafts and played. They also visited the Olive Press Project, an interactive exhibit where they saw how olive oil was extracted from raw olives during the Temple period.
The Bais Chabad Torah Center in West Bloomfield sponsors the three-day tribute to the eight-day Jewish holiday, one of the most widely-celebrated holidays and a favorite amongst children.
