Hanukkah, meaning “dedication” in Hebrew, refers to the joyous eight-day celebration during which Jews commemorate the victory of the Macabees over the armies of Syria in 165 B.C.E. and the subsequent liberation and “re-dedication” of the Temple in Jerusalem. The modern home celebration of Hanukkah centers around the lighting of the chanukiah, a special menorah for Hanukkah; unique foods, latkes and jelly doughnuts; and special songs and games.
CBH knows how to party as we celebrate with latkes and a potluck buffet, singing & dancing, dreidel playing and more! Perhaps the highlight is feeling the warm glow from the room full of menorahs all being lit at the same exact time. Please bring your menorah if you have one and join us!
