Celebrate Chanukah with Your Emanu-El Community!
The flames of the Chanukah menorah are a symbol of Jewish identity and continuity. We light the menorah for eight days to remember the miracle of the human spirit, honor the light of rededication and the Maccabees who put their trust in God.
And if you’re looking for Tzedek gift ideas this Chanukah, look no further than our list compiled by none other than our Senior Rabbi Beth Singer
