Chanukah is the eight-day long Jewish "Festival of Lights," which begins this year at sundown, Saturday, December 24th. Each evening at sunset an additional candle is lit to commemorate the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem some 2000 years ago. The holiday also celebrates the miracle of one day’s worth of pure ritual oil burning for eight days until a new supply could be obtained.

"Chanukah's a time for celebrating the freedom to openly honor our values; freedom, goodness and light are all celebrated," said Rabbi Nochum Kurinsky, Director of Chabad @ the Beaches “This event is designed to bring the joy of Chanukah to people of all ages, backgrounds, and interests.”

Event is open to the public and there is no charge. Donations are always appreciated. Please see for further details or call the office at 904-543-9301. For more information about this or any other Chabad @ the Beaches activity or event, contact Chabad by phone at (904) 543-9301, by E-mail at
