NIGHT 6:  
Tuesday, December 15 at 5:30 PM
Theme: Hanukkah Music From the Great Cantors

The miracle of Hanukkah has inspired great works of music. Come appreciate our cantorial legacy and let your heart sing with Hazzan-in-Residence David Krohn!

CBS Men's Club President Wayne and Cheryl Lidsky will lead us in lighting our hanukkiyot.





Wednesday, December 16 at 5:30 PM
Theme: Resilience

Part of the miracle of Hanukkah is that we have faced incredible obstacles (antisemitism, poverty, displacement) and still maintained the light of the Jewish people.

Join Cantor Levine to talk about this ability to "bounce back" from hard times.

CBS Women Presidents Caren Harris and Lisa Estes will lead us in lighting our hanukkiyot and, of course, we'll sing Hanukkah songs.

Thursday, December 17 at 5:30 PM
Theme: Rededication

Our eight-day celebration of Hanukkah commemorates the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem during the second century B.C.E., after Jews rose up against their Greek-Syrian oppressors in the Maccabean Revolt.

On this last night of Hanukkah, let us rededicate ourselves to our Brith Shalom community with a virtual communal candle lighting, our favorite Hanukkah songs, and a special slideshow featuring you and your families!
