Celebrate Chanukah With Your Emanu-El Community!

chanukah

The flames of the Chanukah menorah (Chanukkiah) are a symbol of Jewish identity and continuity. We light the Chanukkiah for eight days to remember the miracle of the human spirit, commemorate the light of re-dedication, and honor the Maccabees who put their trust in God.

Projecting Light in a Time of Darkness: An Original Art Installation

Emanu-El is thrilled to promote an innovative art project by multimedia storyteller and Emanu-El member, Ben Wood, to light up our beloved building during Chanukah. This large-scale light installation will re-animate our history, by interweaving holiday and historical images. You are invited to drive or stroll past our building on Arguello, after sundown, to celebrate and bask in the miracle of the Festival of Lights!

Connecting Cultures Through Chanukah: Latkes and Music
Thursday, December 17
7:00 – 8:00 pm
Join us for the eighth night of Chanukah with a celebration that interweaves culture, community, and storytelling! We are partnering with Inon Tzadok—the visionary behind the Middle Eastern marketplace “Shuk Shuka”—to create a virtual global culinary tour of latkes from around the world. We’ll learn more about Jewish cultures through their delicious Chanukah recipes, and Cantor Marsha Attie will continue the journey, leading us in songs that draw on diverse cultural influences. To compliment this special evening, Shuk Shuka has created a special Chanukah package for purchase, featuring a selection of latkes from around the world, paired with different dips. Pick-up, delivery, and shipping options are available, so feel free to send one to a friend or family member this Chanukah, and invite them to join you for the program! For more details, or to place your order, please click here.

Chanukah Celebration Video
To help you and your children celebrate Chanukah together in an engaging and fun way this year, Jonathan Bayer and Rabbi Sarah Joselow Parris have created a new 30-minute Chanukah celebration video. The video includes songs, a story, blessings, Q+A, and a latke competition… a little something for everyone! The video is not pegged to any one night of Chanukah, so we encourage you to view it whenever is best for your schedule.

Light of Giving: Homeless Prenatal Program
For the third annual Chanukah Light of Giving, the Tzedek Council invites you to join us in collecting much-needed supplies for expectant mothers and families experiencing poverty and homelessness through the Homeless Prenatal Program (HPP). Your generosity will enable us to spread a message of resiliency and light to families in need this holiday season. Our hope is to eliminate financial stress as new moms make this life-changing transition into motherhood, turning their lives around for their new baby.

Our donors have the option of assembling items for a special Hamotzi box, filled with kitchen staples to ensure that each HPP family is nourished as they move into temporary or more permanent homes. Details of these boxes (shopping list of items to be purchased, how to get the boxes, etc.) will be shared upon donation. This is a wonderful project as families can shop for items together, and children will have firsthand experience of the importance of tzedakah to our community.

HOW YOU CAN HELP:
$500: Purchase Infant Car Seat Stroller Combo + Portable Crib
$250: Purchase Infant Car Seat Stroller Combo

Young Adult Community
Our Young Adult Community is taking the challenges of this past year and turning them into opportunities for connection and celebration! Through gift exchange, Chanukah kit delivery, and candle lightings, we are thrilled to offer multiple avenues and innovative ways to bring our young adults together in community. Email [email protected] for more information.            

Tikkun Emanu-El Shuk
The Tzedek Council is excitedly reanimating the Tikkun Emanu-El shuk just in time for Chanukah, to bring light to your business! If you have you own business and want to sell items/services through our shukplease use this form to submit your (Chanukah) description, so we can make sure that our members receive up to date information as they do their holiday shopping from you.  Click here to learn more and to view the current shuk.
