Dear WJC Family,
Happy Hanukkah! Yes, Hanukkah starts on Sunday night at sundown when we will light the first candle. Not sure whether we put the candles in right to left and light them left to right or put them in left to right and light them right to left? This hanukkiah lighting tutorial video from MyJewishLearning.org should help. If you are not sure which is left and which is right this “Easiest way to Remember Right and Left” video should be useful for you. If you don’t know how to watch a video on YouTube, this video about “How and Why to sign into Youtube” video should be helpful.
And, of course, Hanukkah in this day and age wouldn’t be complete without a new video from a premier Jewish acapella group, so enjoy Six13’s – Elton Johnukah! Or how about this one?
As I mentioned last week, Wednesday night, my family and six others from WJC will head to Israel (finally, after two postponements!), so this will be my last message until 2023 (Happy New Year!). You can still hear from me by following our trip blog, which will appear on the WJC home page, and feature updates on the trip, as well as reflections from myself and other trip participants. We’ll post the updates on my Facebook page as well as the synagogue’s Facebook page too. We hope you’ll follow along and join us in spirit, if not in person.
I would like to put a few things on your radar (and your calendar) for January. We have lots of great stuff coming up:
And before all that, I hope we’ll see you in shul this Shabba—it’s an ECC Shabbat/Dinner/Rhythm & Ruach/Chocolate Hanukkah Festival Shabbat, so I hope you’ll join us for at least some of that Friday evening and Saturday looks to be a lovely, pre-break Shabbat in shul, including some of those traveling to Israel taking a farewell aliyah. So, Happy Hanukkah and…
See you in shul.
