2018 Chanukah Party Another Success

At the beginning of December 2018 and on the eve of Chanukah 5779, Temple Tifereth Israel held another very successful Chanukah celebration. As usual there was great food, Chanukah music and singing, led by our Hebrew School students.

In addition to eating and partying, attendees had the opportunities to purchase Chanukah items and jewelry. Game and craft tables for the young people attending were manned by Temple volunteers.

Rabbinical intern, Mimi Micner, gave and a short holiday message, followed by the illumination of the first light of the holiday. Led by Mimi, all present recited the Candle lighting prayers for the first night of Chanukah. A most joyful good time was had by all.

Shown below are a few pictures taken at our Chanukah celebration. To see all the photographs, check the Temple’s photo albums located on the table at the entrance to the sanctuary. May we all gather together next year to again celebrate the victory of light over darkness and of religious freedom over intolerance.

QUESTION THAT AROSE THIS CHANUKAH: Could it be true that fried potato latkes and jelly donuts are actually healthier than Romaine lettuce?
