Time flies when you are having fun! In just over another month, the holiday of Chanukah will be
upon us. This year, Chanukah falls between December 11 and December 18. Instead of running around
wasting time and fuel to find Chanukah gifts for your children, grandchildren, or anyone else,
you can buy your gifts right here in Winthrop at Temple Tifereth Israel, while, at the same time,
helping to support the Temple.
The Temple’s Sisterhood has for many years operated a gift shop where many Judaic items can be
purchased. Normally, Chanukah items would be available prior to the holiday and at the annual
Chanukah part. But, as we all know, this is not a normal year. There will be no Chanukah party
at the Temple this year. Still, like Jews around the world, we will continue to celebrate the
joyous Festival of Lights, but in a more subdued fashion.
Beginning on Sunday, 15 November, the Sisterhood will conduct the sale of Chanukah items at the Temple.
The sale will take place each Sunday thereafter - between 10:00 am and noon - until 6 December.
Masks, social distancing and all relevant Covid-19 protocols will be strictly adhered to. Come on
down to the Temple and do your Chanukah shopping.
