Chabad Austin 2013 Inaugurates New Playgound at Hebrew Preparatory School Bais Menachem.
Event No. 4 – Chabad's Austin Hebrew Preparatory School Bais Menachem (HPSBM) inaugurates its new outdoor playground with a Chanukah celebration.
Parents, HPSBM students and the entire community were all invited to this festive Chanukah show.
Parents and their children took advantage of the sunny day to enjoy the Chanukah show, carnival games, "moon walk" Sufgayot, latkes (סופגאַניאָט און לאַטקעס), cookie decorating and lighting of the Menorah.
A real holiday feeling prevailed with cast members mingling with guests.
