2019 Chanukah on Ice Will Be Eighth Night Celebration

Jewish tradition teaches that no matter how dark it gets we must strive to bring light. No holiday celebrates this concept more brightly than Chanukah, which requires lighting one additional candle each night until we have filled the eight-branched menorah or chanukiah and brought light to the darkness.

Every year, Chanukah on Ice attracts a crowd of families for outdoor ice skating to Chanukah music, with stops for hot chocolate, sufganiyot (traditional jelly doughnuts), and the lighting of the largest menorah in Boulder County.

This year, the festivities are on the eighth night, Sunday December 29, beginning at 4:00 and the menorah is lit at 5:00.

No reservations are required and everyone is welcome!

Admission to WinterSkate is $10 for adults and $8 for people four to 12 and includes skate rental. Say you are there for the menorah lighting and get $1 off!

WinterSkate is located at 824 Front Street in downtown Louisville.

Sponsored by Boulder JCC, Boulder Center for Judaism, Schad Agency and Ed and Julie Victor.

“It Started With Words” – Holocaust Survivors Give Stunning Testimonies To Mark Holocaust Remembrance Day

Before local anti-Jewish laws were enacted, before neighborhood shops and synagogues were destroyed, and before Jews were forced into ghettos, cattle cars, and camps, words were used to stoke the fires of hate. #ItStartedWithWords is a digital, Holocaust education campaign posting weekly videos of survivors from around the world reflecting on those moments that led up to the Holocaust – a period of time when they could not have predicted the ease with which their long-time neighbors, teachers, classmates, and colleagues would turn on them, transitioning from words of hate to acts of violence.
