• Hanukkah candle lighting with Rabbi Matt

    Hanukkah (meaning Dedication)

    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 Hanukkah, a special menorah for Hanukkah; unique foods are eaten like latkes and jelly doughnuts called Sufganiot; and special songs and games are played.

    Hanukkah Dinner

    We invite you to partake in the warmth of our traditional Hanukkah Dinner and Service held on Friday, December 30, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. Bring along your family menorah to light in the good company of fellow congregational members gathering to celebrate the Festival of Lights.

    For more information about our Hanukkah Celebration Dinner and Service or RSVP, please contact Kathy at klaws@cgoh.org or call the temple office at 518-374-8173.
