As the days grow short, Chanukah’s candles, stories, rituals and music help us to bring light and warmth into dark places. In particular these days, when so many of our hearts are filled with worry and fear, let’s get together to light lights and cultivate joy and togetherness. Maybe even some silliness and laughter will be good medicine for our aching spirits (break out those ugly Chanukah sweaters!)
Let’s light each others’ Chanukah sparks at our upcoming community-wide, intergenerational gathering!
When: December 9th, 2023 4:30 - 6:30pm
Where: Renew Queens' large space in Long Island City (10-15 46th Road). Note: This is NOT the Renew Queens space we usually have our events in! Please note the address.
Who: This gathering is meant for all ages. Everyone is welcome!
What: Bring your own Chanukiah (Chanukah menorah) and some candles with you. We’ll light our candles and watch them burn, sing some joyful songs, tell some stories, eat latkes, and make crafts. Ugly Chanukah sweaters welcome!
Book drive: We're collecting new/gently used children's books for refugees staying in a local hotel, so please bring some along with you. We'll make bookmarks to donate with them.
Accessibility: This is a fully ADA accessible space. The bathrooms are single room/gender neutral and have wide doors with handles on the walls, and there is a changing table in the first bathroom.
COVID: Masks are optional, but encouraged and welcomed. You can read our COVID policy HERE.
Pictures: We occasionally take pics at our events, and these pics sometimes end up in emails, on our social media accounts, and on our website. We generally avoid close ups of faces, especially faces of children. By registering for this event, you are consenting to Malkhut taking photos of you & your guests. While this is new language for our forms, nothing has changed as a policy, we just wanted start being explicit about the use of photographs. If you have any questions, please contact us.
Please register below. We can't wait to celebrate with you!
