Events for Adults

This year, we are hosting a virtual Chanukah party! From 6:00-7:00 PM, join us as we light the menorah and then make latkes together! This party will be lit, and it’s not just because of the menorahs!

Before our Chanukah Kabbalat Shabbat services, join us at 5:00 PM as Julie and Jake Friedman lead us in making delicious sufganiyot (traditional jelly filled pastries)! All ages are welcome. Zoom link coming soon.

We are suggesting two recipes for the dough. The first is a recipe that our Religious School is using, coming from a can. From start to finish, the recipe takes 45 minutes. CLICK HERE for the recipe.

The second recipe is making dough from scratch! If you choose this recipe, we ask you to stop at Step 4 before our event starts. For the recipe, CLICK HERE.

Interested in unique fillings besides your favorite jelly? Julie and Jake suggest nutella or whipped cream!

Happy Chanukah! Join us at 6:00 PM as we light our chanukiah together during Shabbat services. All are welcome to attend and encouraged to attend!

For the Zoom link, email Amy Yoelin.

At 7:00 PM, join Rabbi Locketz and Rabbi Cohen in lighting your menorah and unlocking the rabbinic texts that tell the story of Chanukah. Zoom registration link coming soon.

Join us on the last night of Chanukah at 6:00 PM, as we light our menorahs one last time together as a community. Registration link coming soon!
