Hanukkah Heroes & Lights
Dec. 10 - 17 I 5:30 PM Nightly I FREE I Registration Required
While open to everyone, this program will be particularly designed for adults.
Join the J this Hanukkah for Hanukkah Heroes & Lights! This new program will feature eight nights of virtual celebration with stories, candle-lighting, and the recognition of some local heroes who have brought light and healing into our community during the pandemic. 


Each night of Hanukkah will be hosted virtually by a different synagogue, in conjunction with the J. First, the synagogue rabbi will tell a holiday story or offer a meaningful holiday message. Next, the synagogue will recognize and honor a local MacCovid (read: Maccabee + Covid) hero from their community--someone who has gone above and beyond during the past nine months to help Houston battle the coronavirus pandemic.  Finally, participants will be invited to bring their own Hanukkah menorahs and light candles along with the rabbi as he/she leads everyone in the blessings. At the end there will be some time for socialization. Each evening will last approximately 30 minutes, from 5:30-6:00 p.m. nightly throughout Hanukkah.
