As Chanukah both reaches a crescendo and closes with the lighting of the 8th candle on December 5, it’s only natural for us to gather at the Bayit, as a community, to joyfully raise that light and let it shine into the world.
It’s dark out there so let’s all have some in-person fun!
Or Shalom has planned an all-ages musical celebration featuring Jewish folk band Sulam. There will be a guided instrument-making activity for the wee ones, an interactive, musical storytelling session to follow, community Chanukah candle lighting, and Sulam will perform a second adults-focused show. Come for one leg of the journey or all! Kids will receive a Chanukah swag bag.
Sulam’s musical vibe in one sentence: “Inspired by music from the Middle East and Africa, as well as Flamenco, Klezmer, Yiddish, Gypsy and Jewgrass, Sulam explores Hebrew text through Jewish World Music.”
Here’s how the evening will unfold:
4:00 – 4:45 pm Kids instrument-making activity led by Or Shalom artists and musicians. Maybe even a little dreidel playing!
5:00 – 5:30 pm Sulam’s interactive kids’ concert and Chanukah storytelling with Rabbi Hannah (the young at heart are welcome at this one too!)
5:30 pm We light the 8th candle of the chanukiah as a community. This year, we will be lighting a single menorah instead of all bringing our own.
5:45 – 6:30 pm Sulam plays a show for the big kids too (“adults”)!
Admission is by donation—simply pay what you can. We suggest $7 for individuals and $10 for families. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
