I am looking for video clips about the Chanukah story that my kids - seven to ten years old - can watch. I thought there would be many, but it's not easy to find any good one. I prefer video in Hebrew, but English, French or German is also fine.

It would be great if you can share a link in the Internet or DVD that I can buy.

Happy Chanukah!


Reindeer and Latkes: Aren't The Winter Holidays Suspiciously Similar? Is Hanukkah just a Jewish version of Christmas? What makes Hanukkah special?

    This is for 7 year olds? – mevaqesh Dec 26 '16 at 4:03
  • Thank you for a wonderful video. It seems to be for older ones than mine, but kids grow every year. :) – dav7340398 Dec 26 '16 at 11:38

Strongly recommend The Lights, by Gesher (1985). (Then have a talk with the kids about the symbolism.)

  • Thanks for your recommendation for this video clip. We will try to watch it and talk about the holiday as you suggest. – dav7340398 Dec 26 '16 at 11:44

I'm quite fond of this video, which is recording of a stage play that the Jewish Children's Museum put on in 2006. It's very entertaining, while maintaining the spirit of the story. There are a few parts that are put in for giggles and grins, but they're obvious and most children would understand that's not actually what happened. I've known many young kids who have learned a lot from this video, including my younger siblings.

TorahLive is a great source for authentic Jewish material for kids (and grown-ups). They have a video called Hanukah, the ultimate dedication which you will hopefully enjoy.
