Chanukah

Chanukah, meaning “dedication” in Hebrew, refers to the joyous eight-day celebration during which Jews commemorate the victory of the Macabees over the armies of Syria in 165 B.C.E. and the subsequent liberation and “re-dedication” of the Temple in Jerusalem. The modern home celebration of Chanukah centers around the lighting of the chanukiah, a special menorah for Chanukah.  Unique foods such as latkes and sufganiyot are eaten and special songs and games are also part of the celebration.

At CBI, we celebrate Chanukah in a variety of ways. Here are just a few of the ways we will celebrate in 5781:

This year, the first night of Chanukah will be on Thursday, December 10.

Because of the pandemic, this year's Brotherhood Latke Dinner will be curbside pickup followed by an online Chanukah celebration on Sunday, December 13. Order your latkes and brisket and/or register for the online celebration here by December 6.

Enjoy some fabulous latkes for a good cause! (Every year, CBI’s Brotherhood raises money to send our youth to Israel and summer camp.)
