Menorah Lighting and Shabbat on Snow at Copper, December 12

Copper Mountain, CO, Dec. 10, 2020 — This year, the nation’s most unique Menorah Lighting Ceremony for Chanukah will take place on Saturday, December 12th on the slopes at Copper Mountain. The candle lighting ceremony is part of Rabbi Jamie Korngold, The Adventure Rabbi’s classic event, Shabbat on Snow and it will take place at 12:30 pm behind Solitude Station, located near the bottom of the Excelerator Lift.

Come find out how welcoming the oasis of Shabbat into the ski day can enrich one’s experience on the mountain and nourish the soul. To take part in the event meet Rabbi Jamie Korngold at the base of the Super Bee at 10 am to ski. Or, meet the group behind Solitude Station at 12:30 for a joyous,15-minute Menorah Lighting and Chanukah celebration.

Shabbat on Snow was the first event that was offered by the Adventure Rabbi back in 2001. Combining Shabbat and Skiing with a very brief 15-minute moment is what cemented the Adventure Rabbi’s name in the world of outdoor spirituality.

The event is free but participants will need a ski pass to ride the lifts and a reservation to park. To watch a feature on Rabbi Korngold on the slopes with her congregation click here.
