JRC’s House Klezmer Band Helps Kickoff High-Energy Chanukah Celebrations, Welcoming the Wider CommunityJRC’s House Klezmer Band Helps Kickoff High-Energy Chanukah Celebrations, Welcoming the Wider Community

December 16 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Free

JRC invites the community to join a lively and participatory Kabbalat Shabbat Service and Chanukah celebration featuring Heavy Shtetl performing long-time favorites like “Oh Chanukah” and “Ocho Kanelikas” (8 Little Candles), and even a few originals written by members of the congregation. JRC’s house band is comprised of synagogue members and volunteer musicians who showcase their talents on clarinet, violin, trumpet, trombone, keyboard, banjo, bass and drums. The result is a lively experience that persuades multi-generations to pop out of their seats, dance, and sing along. The festivities at JRC will also include a special performance by JRC’s Junior Choir. To refuel at the end of the evening, Sufganiyot (jelly doughnuts) will be provided to-go. JRC invites the wider community to join the dancing, singing, laughter, and spiritual examination of the holiday, focusing not only on the miracle of oil lasting 8 nights, but also on the beauty of community coming together to make sure the lamp was lit in the first place. The entire ritual will be livestreamed on JRC’s Facebook page.

Details for JRC’s Chanukah programming can be found at JRCtogether.org/about-us/calendar/. All are welcome.
