Upcoming Holiday Services & Programs
Shabbat Chanukah Service
Friday, December 11 | 6:15 PM
We have a wonderful tradition of congregants bringing their Menorah to our Shabbat Chanukah service. This year however, we’ll do it virtually on ZOOM! Each with our own Chanukah menorah at home, we’ll illuminate our computer screens to create a mosaic of lights! Here’s how you can enjoy it:
OPTION to PARTICIPATE in lighting your menorah: If you would like add your light of your menorah on Friday December 11 during the Shabbat service, you will both view the service and light your menorah at the appointed time using ZOOM. All you do is register in advance here (www.wisetemple.org/ChanukahService) so that we can send you the zoom link to use that week, with instructions of how to be ready.
OPTION to VIEW without participating: if you want to enjoy the Shabbat Chanukah service with all its light, without participating in the collective menorah lighting, then you can use the regular mode of either livestream (www.wisetemple.org/livestream) or on our Facebook Live page, and enjoy the service live at 6:15 pm.
See below for many other events to help you celebrate Chanukah with your Wise Temple community.
