JCC Newsletter – Miketz

If you missed the fun Hanukkah sing-along with Shari, there’s still enough time to get in your fix of Hanukkah songs and parodies. The West Side Hanukkah Story video by Six13 is a must.

Rabbi Andrew, Tali and Asher will be hosting live from New York a musical Havdala and candle lighting on our Sunday morning, details below.

The Yiddish Club is back! Led by member Jack Halpern (of Kanji Learner Dictionary’s fame), the club is open to all levels and will be meeting in person after a long hiatus. If you would like to join, please reply to this email for more details.

Please join us for in-person Kabbalat Shabbat services on December 10 and 17.
