Hanukkah Community Celebration

Please join Achi Ben Shalom to celebrate the night of Chanukah with an all-star lineup of performers!! Hanukah illuminates the darkness, calls on us to rededicate ourselves, and challenges the way we spell the name of the festival 😉.  Bring some light and levity to these times through being together in song, dance, candle lighting, and story.  Please join us and help spread the word!       

Saul Goodman’s Klezmer Band will be joined by Gerry Tenney, Achi Ben Shalom, Ariel Luckey, members of the Kehilla Klezmer Band, and others and play for dancing in collaboration with celebrated dance leader Bruce Bierman. Hear songs from the Nigunim Chorus directed by Achi Ben Shalom and stories from noted storyteller Joel Ben Izzy!
