The Miracle of Chanukah

Chanukah is the Jewish eight-day, wintertime “festival of lights, ” celebrated with a nightly menorah lighting, special prayers and fried foods. The Hebrew word Chanukah means “dedication, ” and is thus named because it celebrates the rededication of the Holy Temple. Chanukah begins on the eve of Kislev 25 and continues for eight days.

This year, we will be hosting small, outdoor and socially distanced Menorah lightings throughout the West Side. Click on the link above to find one near you! We will also be hosting virtual online events which we hope you can participate in. 

If you need a Chanukah Menorah, please email [email protected] and we will be happy to drop off a Menorah at your home.  You can also click here to purchase one on Amazon, and it will be mailed anywhere to your friends and family!
