School I: Christmas Trees

school i: Maya and her classmate, Rebecca Weinberg, wanted to put up Hanukkah-themed decorations such as the menorah alongside the Christmas trees and wreaths at the school, according to CTV. I have nothing against Christmas. I don't feel like everybody is being recognized in the way that they should be, said 11-year-old Maya Sontz, who attends General Gordon Elementary in the city's West Side. I just think they should add more Hanukkah and other religions, Rebecca told CTV News. Maya's mother, Sheila Sontz, said she also asked the principal, Hope Sterling, to include some Hanukkah songs during the school's Christmas concert, which will take place during the Jewish holiday this year. I would really like to feel represented. ( As reported in the news.
