Celebrate Chanukah in Lafayette, Sunday, Night 8

Michael Rosenzweig and BJCC ED Jonathan Lev at Ignite Chanukah

LAFAYETTE, CO: In a tradition that gains traction and attendees each year, the Boulder County Center for Judaism is bringing the largest menorah in Boulder County to Lafayette again this year.

The festivities begin Sunday night, December 9th at 4:00 pm

The special honor of lighting the giant community menorah is reserved for someone who has been especially generous in offering their time and energy to the Jewish Community. This year’s Lamplighter is former concierge and marketing director for the Boulder Jewish Community Center, Michael Rosensweig.

There will be acrobatic entertainment by Brian the Circus Knight and special gifts for the first 75 people to arrive. Naturally, there will also be sufganiot (traditional jelly doughnuts) for all.

No reservations are required for this special event, and everyone is welcome. Just bundle up and join the party in Festival Plaza in Old Town Lafayette.

This exciting annual event is hosted by the Boulder County Center for Judaism, and sponsored by JEWISHcolorado and Lafayette Music, without whose assistance it would not be possible.

For more information, call 303-494-1638 or email BoulderJudaism@gmail.com.
