Hanukkah 5782

Do you remember the magical spirit in the air two years ago at our Hanukkah celebration? The social hall was packed with laughter and chatter and kids running around and a general sense of joy and happiness. The sanctuary was so full that in this pre-COVID event we were sitting like sardines, shoulder to shoulder, and pouring into the aisles and the lobby, all of us feeling the strength and warmth in our community.

Let’s recreate this magical spirit of multigenerational togetherness on December 3 at our Community-Wide Hanukkah Celebration. While the room is not going to be packed with as many people, let’s pack the room with the same spirit in a COVID-safe environment.

We also collect new unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots, so bring those too.
