Havurah offers Hanukkah Faire

The public is invited to the Havurah's Annual Hanukkah Faire on Sunday, Dec. 21, at 4:30 p.m.

Hanukkah, Hebrew for "dedication," is the Jewish holiday commemorating the re-dedication of the Temple after its destruction in 164 B.C. As in other faith traditions, Hanukkah serves to bring the light into a very dark time of year.

Children will make their own beeswax Hanukkah candles and a Hanukkah Menorah. There will be lots of Dreydle playing, the traditional spinning top game. Greenleaf Latkes will be available for purchase with all the trimmings and the Hanuukah Gift Shop will be open with many gift ideas for Hanukkah.

Rabbi David Zaslow will lead a community candle lighting and song, Devorah Zaslow will tell a Hanukkah-related story, and Deborah Miriam Leff will lead the Havurah Hebrew School children in performing Hanukkah songs.

Everyone is invited to bring a Menorah and candles to participate in the community candle lighting. The entry fee is $2 per person.

Call 488-7716 for more information. The Havurah is located at 185 N. Mountain Ave.
