Celebrate Chanukah at Beth Am

Chanukah begins Tuesday evening, December 12

The eight-day festival of Chanukah (meaning “Dedication”) reminds us of the victory of the Maccabees against the forces of the Seleucid Empire (167-160 BCE). We light candles against the darkness to honor our ancestors’ determination to preserve their Jewish identity, and the power of the few against the mighty.
