Join your East Bay community for a family-friendly, all-ages pre-Hanukkah celebration. Together we will create, sing, and prepare for this year’s Festival of Lights, and adults will have the chance to think about service during this time of year. For those planning Hanukkah gifts, we’ll showcase jewelry, prints and other wares from local Bay Area artists.

PLUS: Please support our #JCCGivesBack campaign and bring along new or used books (grades PreK-3) to donate to our book drive in partnership with Jewish Coalition for Literacy! Book Drive ends on 12/14. Learn more about our campaign here
