In my Spanish class, my students  are exposed to the myriad of perspectives that exist within what is called here in US, the Hispanic community.  I designed a unit about the end of the year holidays every year, and every year I strive to make this unit more inclusive.

Religious traditions and rituals are discussed because they play an important role in the celebrations of Hispanic countries.  The information the students are exposed to is narrated through a cultural/historical prism.

La comunidad judío-sefardí y la canción en Ladino, Ocho Kandelikas play an important role in the unit of ‘Fiestas de fin de Año’. I teach about Hanukkah as celebrated in Spanish Speaking countries, and also about the Hispanic Jewish community across all my grade levels.

Little Candles which is a Jewish song celebrating the holiday of Hanukkah. The song is sung in Ladino, a Spanish-derived language traditionally associated with the Sephardic Jewish community, whose ancestors lived in Spain before the 15th century.

This PDF document has the lyrics to the song. It is a complement to the other Janucá resource I have previously posted.

You can find the video to the lyrics and more information in my blog post about Janucá https://thewokespanishteacher.com/2018/12/03/hanukah-linda-sta-aki-/
