Grab your skates and head out to Boulder County’s annual Chanukah on Ice in Louisville on Thursday, December 10. Skate with family and friends to Chanukah music, enjoy delicious sufganiyot (jelly donuts), and celebrate the Festival of Lights in a fun and unique environment. In addition to the fun on ice, join us in lighting the only public menorah in Louisville.
Beth Litz will be honored as the menorah lamp lighter at this year’s event. Beth is a Louisville resident and is being recognized for her work at the Boulder JCC as the Shalom Baby director for the past twelve years. While in this role, Beth created many outstanding programs for families with children up to five years old and was instrumental in introducing and engaging many young Boulder County families into the Boulder Jewish community. Previous to this position, Beth was the editor of the Community Page newsletter, now the CenterPoint. Both of her children are graduates of the Boulder JCC Preschool. Beth also worked with the Boulder County Center for Judaism to establish and run the Louisville Chanukah on Ice event for the past four years.
The fun begins at 4:00 pm with the menorah lighting ceremony at 5:00 pm. The event takes place at WinterSkate, 824 Front Street in downtown Louisville. Receive discounted admission if you mention you are there for Chanukah on Ice. Adults $3, Kids (4-12) $2, Children (ages 3 and under) Free. Skate rental $4. Pay at the rink.
David the Dreidel will be spinning around the ice to add a festive touch and to assist anyone who might need help on the ice.
This event is co-sponsored by Boulder County Center for Judaism, the Boulder JCC, Jewish Colorado, Boulder Creek Events, Boulder Jewish News, Oreg Foundation and Ed and Julie Victor.
