Hanukkah in school?? Thoughts?

My dds elementary school is doing a “holidays around the world” thing. Every class has a different one and it rotates by week. Hers is Israel/Hanukkah. Well she had a parent come in and teach the Driedle game. I think it was pretty inappropriate to teach something religious to kids without their parents permission, and I complained to the pronciple but haven’t heard back yet. Am I out of line here? Just seems like something we should’ve been informed of

    If they will be learning all religious holiday traditions I see nothing wrong with it.

    I'm guessing the pronciple is busy.

    How is the dreidel game any more religious than a Christmas tree?

    Do they pit up Christmas decorations?

    Oh FFS. It's good for kids to know about ALL cultures and religion. It helps keep them from being close minded, ignorant idiots.

    I would love for my son to have that experience. Part of a good education is learning about the belief system and traditions of others.

    Spinning a dreidle isn't religious.  There is literally nothing religious about it.  It's a game.  More, it's a game with math.  You'll only make yourself look silly if you complain about it having made no effort to learn about it.

    You’re joking right?!?
    So Christmas/Santa/decorating is fine but god forbid they learn about s different holiday?!?
    Get your stick out of your butthole.
    It’s not like they’re being loaded into vans, circumcised, and shipped off to Israel to become rabbis.
    They listened to a story and played a game!

    Stop being closed minded and uptight. My God. What is wrong with people? Why have we become a Society of whiners, complainers and tattletales?

    I loved my kid learning about different religions. I don’t push my thoughts/beliefs on my kids. They are raised with them present but if they choose something else I’m all for it. So having them get exposed at school is 100% ok in my book

    It’s a top game, not a conversion attempt.
