In December we will be celebrating Chanukah and I hope you will join us for the latke dinner (6 p.m.) and service (7 p.m.) on Friday, December 16th and the Intergenerational Chanukah celebration on Sunday morning, December 18th starting at 9:45 a.m. with a performance by Lil Rev at 10:45 a.m. May the lights of Chanukah remind us all of the Religious freedom for which our ancestors fought so valiantly, and may they brighten our hearts and homes with much warmth and joy!

I wish all of you a wonderful Holiday season and secular New Year! Enjoy this link as we celebrate our Religious Freedom to celebrate Chanukah. May the lights of the menorah light up your homes and hearts with love and joy! A Hamilton Hanukkah video
