Tuesday, December 3 | 6 pm. ONE CANDLE FOR A CHANUKAH CELEBRATION at JCC.
Join the community for a unique Chanukah celebration! Families are encouraged to shop for new toys, and donate them instead of exchanging gifts on this one night of Chanukah. All gifts and toys should be unwrapped, and the JCC will take care of donating them to our local "Toys for Tots." Those unable to attend the event may still participate and drop off unwrapped toys at the JCC the week prior to the event. Participants will be treated to a latke dinner with sufganiot (Jelly doughnuts) for dessert. After dinner, enjoy the community candle lighting, Chanukah songfest, children's activities, face painting and exciting action filled entertainment provided by Ring of Steel Action Theater! We will even have special guests from Israel! Cost $5 per person or $15 per household. RSVP to the JCC front desk or by calling 971-0990. Questions? Contact Noreen De Young at email@example.com.
