Dear Friends,
  Hanukkah arrives tonight, and we wish you a light-filled holiday! 
  Today is also Pearl Harbor Day, and we remember the importance of kindling light against the dark then, and now.

  Our Shabbat/Hanukkah Family Service (7:30 PM) tomorrow, led by our 4/5th grades, will feature the lighting of our 123-year-old menorah, festive music, and a tasty oneg.
   This is also our community Leonia lighting, and we will be joined by both our mayor and mayor-elect. 
    Note: there will not be a daily lighting of an outdoor menorah this year. (Our outdoor menorah has been retired.)

   Curious about the "true" story of Hanukkah? 
   Our special Shabbat/Hanukkah Torah Study (10:00 AM) will consider the Book of Maccabees, that ironically did not make it into the Hebrew Bible, but sheds important light on what really happened. 

    Ready to rock in the sanctuary?
    A Swinging Hanukkah Jazz Concert (2:00 PM) on Sunday, features our very own Scott Dennis and his band, with a wine and cheese reception to follow (free and open to the public- invite your friends!). 

     At any of these events please pick up your Hanukkah gift bag from the social hall, courtesy of our Caring Community Committee. 

     And congratulations to student cantors Flaxman and Karlin, who had their senior recitals this week and last at Hebrew Union College and were magnificent!

Shabbat shalom and Hag Urim Sameach,
Rabbi Schwartz
