The candles will be burning bright at Beth Sholom as we celebrate the third night of Hanukkah together! Our annual Hanukkah celebration is always a joyous party, but this year we’re turning it up to eighteen by introducing some fun new elements including a special, Hanukkah-themed play by Troupe de Beth Sholom. Bigger! Bolder! Brighter!
As always, we invite attendees to bring their favorite hanukkiah (Hanukkah menorah) for our communal candle lighting and we’ll be spinning happy holiday tunes, but there will also be fun activities for “kids” of all ages and we’ll be serving a light dinner, classic Hanukkah eats, wine, beer, margaritas, and more.
