Happy Chanukah!

Welcome to our Chanukah Minisite! Feel free to take a look around, see our upcoming events and learn about the miracle of Chanukah!

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.
