Join us (on Zoom) Thursday, December 17th at 3:30 pm HST, to light menorahs for the 8th night of Chanukah.  Together with Conservative Congregations from across the country, we will celebrate the joy, the music, and the hope of good health and light that comes with Chanukah. IllumiNation, a one-hour program spearheaded by Rabbi David Booth (our nephew) of Congregation Kol Emet in Palo Alto, California, will assemble leaders and congregants from all 50 states to celebrate together at the same time on the 8th night of Chanukah. In addition to menorah lighting, IllumiNation will feature a concert by internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter Neshama Carlebach and a chance to connect (optional) through breakout groups with others across the country. Please put Thursday, December 17th, 3:30 pm, on your calendar to join with us for this one-of-a-kind virtual celebration. We will provide a Zoom link as the date approaches.
