Community Chanukah Celebration

Friday, December 15 at 7:30 PM

Join us in our Chanukah celebration this Shabbat! Rabbi Olivier will invite us in considering the story of Chanukah as a mirror to the socio-economic political tectonic plates colliding in our world today.

As it has been our tradition each year, bring your Chanukiah and 5 candles(as this will be the 4th night of Chanukah) to fill our sanctuary with light.
