See How We Celebrated Hanukkah…Around The Globe!
Although we could not all gather together this year for Hanukkah, Rodeph Sholom stayed festive with a nightly Zoom menorah lighting during all eight nights.
In addition to having special people lighting their menorahs at home, leading the blessings and singing a Hanukkah song, we also toured the globe from the comfy confines of our homes. Each night of Hanukkah there was some interesting information about a different place on this planet!
We invite you to view our Zoom menorah lighting event by click on the links below:
