Chanukah Events

Chanukah runs from December 2-10, 2018

Chanukah at Bet Alef is a joyful celebration of light and the commemoration of an ancient miracle. It is a time for us to reflect on the light that we bring into the world and focus on the miracles of life around us.  It is also a time for beautiful music, family, friends and delicious food.

This year join us for our Chanukah Shabbat eve dinner and service, and for our Shabbat morning young-families celebration.
