We will say the blessings together, and honor our Tikkun Olam lay leaders, who have provided so many opportunities to help us repair and take care of our world, both on a personal level and in our wider community. And, we take this opportunity in the middle of the holiday week to make time for fun and relaxation with a game night for adults! We will play games like Skriblio, and Heads Up. Feel free to say goodnight after we light the candles, or stay with us for a fun interactive game night. All you need to participate is a computer and Zoom. Please register here. Registration is required for each individual who will be playing; if there is more than one adult in your household participating, they will need to log into Zoom from an individual device.

As the Festival of Lights draws to a close, we gather together to share the light one final time. We have two great options:

Join us in person, at TBS. Please plan to stay in your car and enjoy music from Cantorial Soloist DJ Fortine; Rabbi Jay Perlman, Rabbi Todd Markley, and Rabbi Julie Bressler will lead the Chanukah blessings.

Once at home, join us again to light your own menorah with your TBS Community! We will join our voices on Zoom as we say the blessings for the last time this year.

Both options are open to all; you are welcome to participate with us in person, online, or both.
