Chabad @ CU Spreads a Lot of Chanukah Light

Match-a-Thon Starts Tuesday

Rohr Chabad Center at University of Colorado took advantage of a relatively early start to the Chanukah holiday this year to roll out eight nights full of light to the entire CU campus.  By the numbers, Chabad@CU distributed 300 menorahs, 1,200 latkes and 600 sufganyot at five dorm parties, five fraternities, six sororities, one Giant Menorah lighting, one Shabbat dinner, one Chanukah dinner, and two Dreidel parties — all in just eight nights!

Here’s the lcoations that benefited from much Chanukah light (and food):

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound III," because I'm a smart Cookie, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was adopted from the Humane Society of Boulder Valley and have many friends there also looking for homes.
