Shir Hadash Awesome Hanukkah Party!
This year our party will be held on Saturday, December 10, from 6:15 to 8 p.m.
Light the Lights and celebrate Hanukkah, the Jewish festival of freedom. Family-fun games and activities will begin our evening. Then we’ll enjoy a great Hanukkah Show featuring the Cor Corps French Horn Ensemble playing Hanukkah favorites. Our Mighty Shir Hadash Klezmorim will get us on our feet for some great dancing, our Lahaka Adult Choir will lead us in song, and the children in our religious school have a special song to sing, too. Rabbis Eitan and Seeg will share lessons of our tradition. Then, we will light the Hanukkah menorah, wave glow lights as we sing, and have a latke judging contest. And when all is done, join us for potato latkes and doughnuts, traditional Hanukkah treats. Don’t miss it.
Are you a fan of the Great British Baking Show? Would you like to be a contestant in the Great Shir Hadash Latke Show (contest)? Click here to enter as a contestant. Make your latkes at home and bring them for judging! We'll hold the judging right before the oneg.
Or, maybe latke tasting is more your speed! We need four judges. Click here to sign up to do your civic duty and taste some latkes!
If you have any questions contact Melanie at email@example.com.
This celebration is brought to you by the Programming and Creative Worship & Ritual Committees.
