With a short school vacation schedule, many locals have decided to stay put this Hanukka and entertain their children with day trips. A well-planned “staycation” gives you the best of both worlds – the comfort of home with the excitement of nearby attractions and special Hanukka events.

First on my list of Hanukka “must-see” activities is a candle lighting ceremony.
