Community Menorah Lighting Party:
West County's largest menorah lighting party to increase joy & counter darkness
Welcome Shabbat, Celebrate the 7th night of Hanukkah together, and Try Your Hand for the GRAND PRIZE local gift certificate @ the World Series of Dreidl!
At this time when darkness abounds, replenish your resources by gathering in community and bathing in the nourishing light of Hanukkah & Shabbat.
Everyone is welcome to join us for a veggie, potluck dinner and an evening of dreidl spinning, singing, eating and meeting friendly neighbors! Bring your own Hanukkiah/Hanukkah menorah, and enough oil or candles for 7 nights!
4:30 Gathering & community candle lighting for Shabbat & Hanukkah, followed by Shabbat & Hanukkah songs.
(If you cannot arrive by this time, feel free to bring your Hanukkah menorah and light candles when you arrive!)
5:15 Vegetarian Potluck Dinner, followed by the World Series of Dreidl

There is no fee to participate, but this year there are additional costs to our gathering, from renting the space to the Grand Prize, to providing some latkes and sufganiyot- Hanukkah donuts- from La Bodega! (Please bring some as well, for a blind taste test!)
Whether or not you are able to attend, please make a generous donation here to off-set these costs and help us create a wonderful celebration for all! Thank you for your support.
