Friday Night Feast Hanukkah Celebration with Music by Rhythm & Jews
Friday, December 19, 6:30pm

A free, catered Shabbat feast! Our annual community-wide celebration includes Hanukkah and Shabbat candle lighting. Bring your own candles and hanukiyah (Hanukkah menorah), or one for each member of your family, and we will proclaim the “great miracle” with a room filled with light. Dinner will be catered, followed by sweet, sugary sufganiyot (jelly donuts), with spinning dreidles and music to celebrate the rededication of the Temple in days of old. This monthly event is a wonderful opportunity to introduce your friends to our BIJ Community.

RSVP online by 12/12.

Rhythm and Jews is University of Chicago’s premier Jewish a cappella group, and is happy to return to BIJ! The group has been singing together since the start of the year, working on a wide repertoire of Jewish and secular songs in English and Hebrew. Including some brand-new arrangements they’re excited to share with you! R&J welcomes you to a Hanukkah performance of pop songs, traditional songs, and of course, puns.

At BIJ we pride ourselves on our welcome and warmth. Jews and non-Jews alike are welcome at all our services and events. We know how important it is to find a spiritual home where Jewish community is valued and real, for Jews and for their non-Jewish family and friends. The congregation is a member of the Union for Reform Judaism.

Here, you can make a difference in the temple and its programs, find new friends, nurture your faith, serve the Jewish people in San Francisco Bay Area and in the world around us, and cheer with our crowd at a baseball game.
