Jelly & Jam – Don’t Let the Light Go Out!

Nothing combats the uncanny Vancouver cold we’ve been having like the warmth of the Or Shalom community celebrating together! We basked in the light of our 5th night candles as we sang, collaged, decorated candles and ate jelly doughnuts to our hearts content. Thank you to all who joined us!

Jelly and Jam Chanukah Event

Join us for our Jelly & Jam Chanukah Celebration!

Starting at 6pm, we’ll have family-oriented artistic candle decorating and a communal menorah collage. Along with a Chanukah sing-along, we’ll have delicious doughnuts and other yummy snacks!

At 7pm, we’ll join together with the whole community to light candles. We invite you to bring your favourite chanukiah from home (candles will be provided)!

From 7:30pm onward, Or Shalom’s “late night” crowd will continue the festivities with snacks, beers, and a fabulous musical jam! Potluck snacks are welcome.

Entrance will be by donation to Or Shalom’s Tzedaka Fund to support:

Battered Women’s Support Services, Women of the Wall, and Education of Abayudaya orphans in Uganda.

All contributions are appreciated!
