Hanukkah 2018

Our own festival of light, Hannukah invites us to reflect on hope in times of darkness. We gather in song and dance to celebrate resilience. We offer festivities for all ages, from a children’s Hanukkah-themed pop-rock concert to a spirited dance party with a live Israeli band.

Join us for a not-to-be-missed Hanukkah celebration with beloved Bay Area children’s musician, performer, and educator Alison Faith Levy. Her live show engages kids and families in a variety of dancing, jumping, spinning, wiggling, pretend play, and other silliness—all to the
rhythms of her imaginative, upbeat retro pop songs.

Alison Faith Levy has toured the country, released two solo albums for children and families, and is currently working on her third.
