Happy Hanukkah! Over 250 people came to celebrate the first night of Hanukkah at The Temple. Thank you to Brotherhood for cooking over 1000 latkes! #thetemplelouky
Hanukkah, meaning “dedication” in Hebrew, refers to the joyous eight-day celebration during which Jews commemorate the victory of the Maccabees over the armies of Syria in 165 B.C.E. and the subsequent liberation and “re-dedication” of the Temple in Jerusalem. Our Brotherhood Hanukkah supper is the stuff of legends. 1000 latkes are prepared, songs and games for all ages are shared.
