Chanukah, the “Festival of Lights,” celebrates the victory of a brave band of Jewish fighters, known as the Maccabees, over their foes. Chanukah is a time for us all to remember to treasure our Judaism and a reminder of our responsibility to create a world where all are free to practice their religion in peace.
At CBE, we love celebrating this holiday together. During the Shabbat of Chanukah, we invite everyone to bring their menorah to the sanctuary as we light the candles together as a community. It is a beautiful evening. Additional Chanukah programs include the “Maccabiah” games, run by our religious school, and a holiday bazaar. Of course, we always make time for latkes and sufganiyot!
