Then, on the seventh NIGHT of Chanukah, Friday, December 14th, Har HaShem hosts a Chanukah 2nd Shabbat for All Ages!

At 5 pm, start in the school wing with Caroline Saliman and Leah Boonin for a celebration of Chanukah with stories, song and craft. Congregants of all ages are invited to hear holiday tales, sing along to favorite songs, and make a craft to light up the night.

At 6 pm, travel into the sanctuary for a community menorah/chanukiah lighting and a different kind of multi-generational, candlelit Shabbat service with traditional teachings, songs, and prayer led by clergy and our band, Or Zimrah. Bring your menorah/chanukiah and non-perishable food to assist the less fortunate during this happy holiday season. Remember to bring candles. We provide matches.

A SOLD OUT traditional Chanukah dinner with latkes follows (for those who pre-registered) at 7:30 pm with latkes. Everyone is welcome to attend the Oneg Shabbat though!
