2018 Chanukah on Ice Lives Up to Name

Louisville was appropriately frosty Thursday night, as dozens turned out to skate, drink hot chocolate, eat sufganyot and watch as Adam Sloat lit the Giant Menorah at WinterSkate.  Adam began the ceremony with a re-telling of the Chanukah story, then he led the assembled crowd in the Chanukah prayers. After lighting the menorah, Rabbi Pesach Scheiner, from organizer Boulder County Center for Judaism, sang a Chanukah song.

Thursday night was night #5, and Boulder County Center for Judaism will be holding a final Menorah Lighting in for the 2018/5799 holiday Sunday night in Lafayette.
