Hanukkah: Festival of Lights

Local News

It’s the last hurrah at a local Jewish temple.

This Spring the Reform Jewish Congregation is moving out of its Liberty Street location.

But first, they invited the public in for the annual Festival of Lights.

Folks learned the story of Hanukkah and took a closer look at the temple’s sanctuary and chapel.

Some congregants shared their Hanukiahs with the crowds. 

“Hanukiahs are kind of like Christmas trees in that every single one of them is unique and there’s always something special about them. There’s always a story behind them and each family has a few that are a part of their history,” said Sharon Warshaw, the event coordinator. 

Visitors also enjoyed menorah walks, dreidel games and a bake sale.
