Hanukkah, meaning “dedication” in Hebrew, refers to the joyous eight-day celebration during which Jews commemorate the victory of the Macabees over the armies of Syria in 165 B.C.E. and the subsequent liberation and “re-dedication” of the Temple in Jerusalem. The modern home celebration of Hanukkah centers around the lighting of the hanukiah, a special menorah for Hanukkah; unique foods, latkes and jelly doughnuts; and special songs and games. 

Join us at NCRT this Hanukkah for a special Shabbat Hanukkah Synaplex.  Friday, November 29, 2013 at 6:00pm.   Bring your favorite family menorah as we light them together at the front of the sanctuary and celebrate in the light of our temple family.
