‘Chanukah Caravan’ visiting Scandinavia


(JTA) — The "Chanukah Caravan" is visiting Scandinavia.

The "Chanukah Caravan," a production organized by World Bnei Akiva, the Religious Affairs in the Diaspora and Hagshama departments of the World Zionist Organization, and the Jewish Agency, is operated by Israeli emissaries  who not only produce the show, but also perform in original choreographed dance numbers and songs.

The caravan is visiting Jewish communities in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland.

Two Bnei Akiva members from Oslo who represented Scandinavia in the Jewish Eurovision contest recorded a special Chanukah cover song in Norwegian to the popular "Friends" sitcom theme song.

"The caravan brings the Israeli spirit of Chanukah to hundreds of Jewish children and families across Scandinavia," said Aryeh Jacobson, central emissary to Scandinavia of the Jewish Agency, World Zionist Organization and World Bnei Akiva. "Through the Israeli music and holiday stories, the community members can identify with Chanukah in a fun and meaningful way."
