Hanukkah Celebration & Boutique
Join Congregation Beth El for a magical evening when they embrace old Hanukkah traditions in a Fiddler-on-the-Roof themed extravaganza on Saturday, November 23, from 4 to 8 p.m. You’ll stroll a rustic path leading to a quaint Jewish village to dance the night away, play Hanukkah Games, enjoy a Latke Contest, live Klezmer music and an interactive dance workshop led by members of the Wholesale Klezmer Band, who will perform a Havdalah ceremony with traditional and contemporary rituals.
A Community Potluck Dinner will follow. Guests are asked to bring a vegetarian or dairy dish to share. Prepare and bring your best latkes to enter the Contest. Afterward, shop for gifts at the Hanukkah Gift Boutique, offering original pottery, pressed flower art, calligraphy, Beth El cookbooks and items from Lenox Judaica. Everyone is invited to Congregation Beth El, 107 Adams Street, Bennington. Suggested donation of $18.
