Event description

Description



Chanukah is so much more than spinning a dreidel, opening presents, and eating latkes, but many of us are looking for ways to create a more meaningful experience around the holiday. Gather with us on the third night of the festival of lights and explore the beautiful themes and rituals around light, miracles, and dedication (Chanukah literally translates to "dedication). We'll learn about soulful Jewish meditation practices on light, light the menorah together, practice a holiday-themed writing meditation, and connect with ourselves and our community. And, there will be snacks!
