Hanukkah Celebration in Highland Park

I will be attending a Hanukkah celebration at Temple Beth Israel of Highland Park and Eagle Rock.

The narrative of Hanukkah is focused on the ideas of community resilience, hope and faith amid times of great struggle and change. The holiday stems back to the unlikely victory of the Maccabees in winning back the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, as well as the great miracle of a one-day’s supply of oil burning strong for 8 days. The triumph of the light and resurgence over dark times remains a common theme in Jewish community life and for the congregants of Temple Beth Israel.

Temple Beth Israel has been at their present location since 1930 and is one of the oldest congregations in Los Angeles to stay in their original home. Please join me and Susan Goldberg, who will be leading the congregation for this festive occasion.

The event is open to the community and will last from 4:30 PM to 8:30 PM on Saturday, December 4th. Temple Beth Israel of Highland Park and Eagle Rock is located at 5711 Monte Vista Street, Los Angeles, CA 90041

The event will include a dairy potluck, Games for Children and a Hanukkah Sing-a-long, for more information click here!
