Celebrate Hanukkah with the WJC!

Hanukkah Party!

Sunday, December 10, 4pm at the WJC.
Activities, games, food and joyous celebration for all ages. Bring your menorah!

Join us as we bring in the fourth night of Hanukkah. The party begins at 4pm with Hanukkah themed games and activities. Our very own klezmer band, Klezmer Berl’s Hotsie Totsie Orkester, will share Hanukkah music throughout the party.
Bring your menorah, or make one at our crafting tables! There will be singing, stories, games, food and a gift exchange.

Please bring something you already have that you are done with, wrap it and note age and gender appropriateness if that matters. Most of all bring your enthusiasm for lighting a light in the darkness.

Helpers are always needed, contact Diane Colello at 845 616-9823 if you want to participate. Also RSVPs make it easier for us to plan.

For our Zoom participants: there will be a limited Zoom stream option during the party. We will have additional Zoom options during the week (see below):
