A very pressing matter at the start of Hanukkah
On the first evening of Hanukkah, youngsters at My Little School, a preschool at Gymboree, at 100 Reade St. in Tribeca, used olive oil they made to light the menorah.

Hanukkah commemorates the miracle of one day’s supply of oil that miraculously lasted not one but eight nights.
