Rabbi's Message
Join us for Chanukah 2022!

Chanukah is coming, and we want to take this opportunity to wish you and yours a very happy and inspiring eight-day Festival of Lights!

Reading and sharing is great, but the most important thing do is to light the menorah. Click here for a full guide with all of the information you need to fulfill this mitzvah.
