Light the community hanukkiyah with us in the atrium and enjoy live music, crafts and fried treats.
Celebrate Hanukkah at the JCCSF! Illuminate the darkness and join us to light the hanukkiyah. Brighten up the night, enjoy a fried treat, make a craft and sing along with music played by Jonathan Bayer.
The central tradition of candle lighting recalls a pivotal moment in Jewish history when the power of a little flame went a long way to brighten up a dark world. It is this light that inspires us today to share our ideas and values with others. Stop by for one evening or share the light with the JCCSF throughout the week.
Candle lighting will be on weekdays only. Rituals, blessings and songs begin at 4:00pm. Join to honor our special guests:
12/7 – Nosh with Micah
12/8 – JCCSF Security Team
12/11 – Brandeis Hillel Day School
12/12 – Rabbi Gershom Sizomu of the Abayudaya Jewish community of Eastern Uganda
12/13 – JCCSF Staff
12/14 – Surprise Special Guest!
ArtBash Your Way: Hanukkah
CJM’s fun-at-home Hanukkah art project is back! Pick up a kit at the JCCSF’s candle-lighting, then gather with friends and family on any night of Hanukkah you choose and follow along with the instructional video to create a fun and playful ritual box for sharing goodness and light. This project is geared for ages 4–12, but is open to all. There are 200 kits available for pick while supplies last.
You can help us thrive. You can make an impact. Make a gift to our At the Heart of It All campaign and ensure the JCCSF can continue to serve our community, invest in our staff and make our programming more dynamic than ever before.
