Creating meaningful opportunities to make connections and learn important values such as kehillah, community, and chesed, caring for others, is what JCC Chicago is all about. The activity demonstrates the importance of giving and being selfless, inspiring the application of those lessons to brighten the lives of others. 

Hanukkah is one of the most widely celebrated American Jewish holidays, enriched through festive family and community gatherings. Jewish people light menorahs, special candelabras, for eight days, as reminders of the Jewish struggle for religious freedom. The eight days of Hanukkah begin this year at sundown on November 27.
