According to the ancient rabbi Hillel, on Chanukah we take it upon ourselves to increase the light and the holiness in the world. At this time of year, as the days grow short, Chanukah’s stories, rituals and music help us to cultivate the spiritual qualities of strength (gevurah) and enthusiasm (zerizut). These qualities have the potential to energize and motivate us to seek holiness and justice through the dark wintertime.
Let’s light each others’ Chanukah sparks at our upcoming community-wide, intergenerational gathering on December 18th at the Community United Methodist Church in Jackson Heights (81-10 35th Ave).
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. This gathering is meant for all ages!
