Chanukah Dial-a-phone

Children through-out the metropolitan area are learning some of the message and history of Chanukah in a new way this year–by dialing the telephone. By calling a special number set aside by the New York Telephone Company, 999-3838, children hear a one-minute recorded message about Chanukah, edited by the Board of Jewish Education of Greater New York. For each of the eight nights of Chanukah, a different message with musical background telling the story of the holiday can be heard. The texts for the messages were prepared from resource materials on Chanukah published by BJE.
