The first day of Hanukkah coincides with Thanksgiving, on 11/28/2013. It turns out that it has never happened before...and it will (almost) never happen again. As part of this not-to-be-repeated occurrence, let us celebrate each day of Hanukkah with joy and thanksgiving! There will be special menorah lightings 8 times this season! Please join us for one night – or all!
CELEBRATE CHANUKAH WITH THE BLUE JACKETS AS THEY TAKE ON THE NASHVILLE PREDATORS!
The AAA Sky Terrace has been reserved for the Jewish Community and discounted kosher food options will be available. There will be a special ceremony during the game that will include the lighting of the menorah. (The game begins at 7:00 pm). Buy tickets online at www.bluejackets.com/chanukah.
What’s your reason to celebrate? The Jewish holidays are the centerpieces of our year. Days when we remember events that forever changed the course of our history.
But they are much more than that. The festivals are pauses in time, primed for personal introspection and spiritual re-connection. Windows to the psyche, fortifying us with tools for facing everyday challenges. Kaleidoscopes of beauty and meaning, changing how we see ourselves, our relationships, and our world.

Sometimes you have only seconds to make your move, and the correct choice is not clear. How DOES one define the boundaries of right and wrong?

This course is an eye-opening experience, a think-tank for teens looking to discover their own Jewish GPS for navigating life!
