Description:

Celebrate the Festival of Lights amid the warm glow of dozens of hanukkiyot that mark the Maccabees’ triumph over the Greeks and their rededication of the Temple. Join us on the seventh night of Hanukkah for this luminous Temple tradition on Friday, December 30 at 7:30 p.m., followed by a champagne toast to a “Happy 2017.”

Please bring your family’s hanukkiya and candles to light during the service. Orin Reynolds will lead the service, which includes musical selections for Hanukkah. Please also bring boxes of pasta to donate to our December Food Drive to benefit the food bank at Wellspring Interfaith Social Services. 

Our 20s and 30s group will meet for the service and then after the service (about 8:30 p.m.) head to nearby Thunder Bowl #1, 6700 Lafayette Street, where we'll imagine the pins are Syrian-Greeks and we, with donuts in hand, are the Maccabees. No need to RSVP. Attendees will cover their own bowling and shoe rental – we’ll provide the donuts. Contact the Temple office at office@templecav.org to be added to our e-mail list.
