Students Surprise with Hanukkah Sweaters
Five of the Hebrew class HBW 101 (Viv, Magan, Yoni, Yael and Rachel) decided to surprise their Hebrew teacher by coming to their final exam wearing special, hand decorated sweatshirts. They all self decorated their sweatshirts in the spirit of the coming Hanukkah, or some Hebrew class jokes. This was done as part of the Hillel Hanukkah Ho-down that was held a few nights prior. Happy Hanukkah to all!
