The event will be led by members of Temple Shalom. Members of the congregation will retell the Hanukkah story with Rabbi Zev Sonnenstein and the Temple Shalom Choir will perform. The Dreidel Man will be accompanied by the Hanukkah Kids to meet and greet the attendees.
Hanukkah is the Jewish eight-day, wintertime “festival of lights,” celebrated with a nightly menorah lighting and special prayers. The word Hanukkah means dedication.
It celebrates the ancient miracle when there was just enough oil to keep the Holy Lamp lit for one night but it lasted for eight nights. Jewish people around the works celebrate and light their Menorahs, eat fried foods such as potato latkes and doughnuts and give gifts.
