PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR THE AITZ CHAIM COMMUNITY CHANUKKAH CELEBRATION
Our next scheduled Friday night Kabbalat Shabbat services will be the 5th night of Hanukkah, December 3, which is also the Christmas Stroll.
At services in November, those present discussed having a small gathering at the Bethel to celebrate Hanukkah. We would gather after lighting the Diane Kaplan Memorial Chanukiah in front of the Civic Center. The thought was that each person would bring food for themselves. Eldon said he would bring individual drinks, probably apple juice or something similar. Stuart said he would bring individual portions of wrapped challah or rolls.
A few years ago, I got some pieces of granite or quartz and we made our own Chanukiot. I am going to try to obtain some granite or quartz and the other things necessary to make the Chanukiot again. If you plan to attend, please bring your own Chanukiah so that we can light a plethora of Chanukiot for this celebration.
Laura has checked with the Bethel and they sent her approval, so we are good to go. We would have a service, eat our own food and then make the “craft” if I am able to find the materials to make them. I’m sure we would be out of there by about 8:30 – maybe a little time to clean up.
The address for the Bethel is 1009 18th Avenue Southwest. click here for map and directions.
Hope to see you there. Happy Chanukkah!
