Hanukkah, an eight-day winter holiday, is derived from the solstice celebrations of ancient people. Hanukkah, which means “dedication” is based on the legend of Judah Maccabee and his followers who successfully resisted the imposition of Greek culture and religion, and the resulting rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem. For Humanistic Jews, Hanukkah is a celebration of human courage, integrity, and hope.
And in 2021, we will be just that. Join us for our first in-person Hanukkah Celebration. Mindful of COVID-19, we ask that all attendees who are eligible be fully-vaccinated. Our youngest – most vulnerable – members rely on your commitment to keep them safe.
 
Light the Menorah
Bring your family menorah and candles. Light the candles along with us as part of a humanistic service.
 
Potluck
Members with last names A-L, please bring a hearty salad or appetizer (some examples: cheese plate; small veggies/dips; mini burritos; spinach pies; salmon or crab cakes; sushi; deviled eggs). Those with last names from M-Z, please bring the main course (some examples: roasted chicken; meatballs; or lasagna). CHJ will provide latkes and soft drinks. BYO wine or beer.
 
Tikkun Olam 
This year, we are collecting NEW toys and clothing for kids of all ages for the “Gun Violence Angels” program, which provides gifts to brighten the holidays, in a small way, for children who have been directly impacted by gun violence. Please bring your unwrapped gift to the Hanukkah party.
This is in lieu of our traditional white elephant festivity.
