Celebrate Chanukah 2020 With Beth Am

Chanukah, which means “dedication,” is the festival that commemorates the purification and rededication of the Temple following the defilement caused by the Greeks during their occupation of that holy place. Today, the holiday reminds Jews to rededicate themselves to stand against forces that would destroy Judaism and to keep alive the flame of Jewish religion, culture and peoplehood so that it may be passed on to the next generation.

Below you will find a schedule of Beth Am Chanukah celebrations as well as Chanukah resources and Chanukah shopping suggestions.

Volunteer Opportunity: Please consider participating in our Chanukah candle delivery to Beth Am members who are 80 years old and above. Learn more and sign up by December 4.
