This is a photo of the top of the table we will be using to hold our Menorahs!
This year I decided to personalize it with photos of the kids from all our Chanukah Menorah lightings at home.
I simply printed photos onto regular white paper (first I changed any color pictures to black and white for a clean look). and cut them out. Then I placed white paper on top of the tabletop and lay down my ‘photos’ making a nice collage.
The center photo is a picture of my husband and I who will iy”h celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary on the 6th night of Chanukah!
I then placed a piece of plexiglass on top (which actually was the ‘glass’ from an old frame I had that fit perfectly on my table.)
Feel free to decorate the pictures with embellishments like glitter or tissue paper, or even change your background color to silver or gold!
Just a sweet little touch to enjoy by all!
This idea can also be used for a chabad event table with photos from public Menorah lightings! A great way to attract people to an information booth!
Lovely idea, Chana. And a good reminder of why it’s so important to take pictures at happy occasions.
thanks! yes, always have that camera on hand!
Loved this idea! A freilachen Chanukah!!

Chana, just a thought that we did that you may want to try with your Alef room kids.
We made menorah’s out of glass picture frames. the kids coloured some chanukah pics and we took pictures of them doing all the chanukah prep activities in the days leading up to chunuka. they stuck all this on to the board from the frame and then after we put the glass back on top we glue gunned 8 copper caps on to it for candles or oil(glasses) and use a flat glass coloured rock to glue the shamash on top of.
Another idea was to make the menorah’s on mirrors and the kids decorated the mirror using sharpie markers and glass paints to make dreidels, and chanuka pictures on it.
THANKS!!! great idea!
