Levin JCC, 1937 Cornwallis Road, Durham, is hosting a free community-wide Hanukkah Festival on Sunday, December 2nd, 2018, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Everyone is invited.
The Hanukkah Festival this year will actually be on the day of the first night of Hanukkah.
Here’s some of what’s going on:
- Bounce house
- Climbing wall
- Arts & crafts
- Cookie decorating
- Opportunities to learn more about the holiday
- Multiple Interactive Menorahs (LEGOs, lights and more!)
- Toddler Zone by Lerner Jewish Community Day School
- Synagogue Shuk (marketplace) with gifts from Beth El Synagogue and Judea Reform Congregation gift shops
- PJ Library Sing-along with Hinda Lind (2:15-2:45pm)
- Maccabee Obstacle Course with Lionheart Kids Fitness
- Airbrushed Kippahs with Chabad
- Latkes, sufganiyot (jelly donuts), and other snacks available for purchase
- Quiet zone and adaptations available, including noise-reducing headphones in children’s sizes
The event is free and open to all, though the JCC asks attendees to practice the Jewish core value of Tzedakkah (charitable giving) by bringing non-perishable food items and/or hygiene products to donate to the Food Pantry.
