Daily Dash--Chanukah Edition

Join a member of our Temple clergy at 6PM every night as they light  the Chanukah menorah (except for Friday, December 3, when it will be a part of services). We will do this as a Zoom meeting so everyone has the option to turn on their cameras and add to the festive lights, or you can join us on Facebook Live.
