NSP Community Chanukah Party

December 10, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Register here to attend NSP’s Community Chanukah Party!

Chassidic thinkers say that on Chanukah, when we light the candles, we are re-lighting our neshamot (our souls). In a challenging time like we’re in now, there’s a risk of our internal lights, our souls, getting dim. The primary job of our community is to rekindle our lights for one another and make sure our souls continue to burn brightly.

NSP’s Annual Chanukah Party will be an all-ages, fun-filled afternoon of connecting in community. Whether you’re bringing your family or coming with friends, join us to mark this joyful holiday and rekindle one another’s lights. 

Come join the party and enjoy:

  • Candle making 🔥

  • Dreidel playing 🎉

  • Filling (and eating!) mini-sufganiyot 🍩

  • Menorah lighting 🕎

  • Exploring our Kollel students’ visions of Chanukah as rebellion against empire 💪

  • Exploring and purchasing an original protest art print by a Kollel student 🪧

  • Reading our JOC Chanukah cookbook 🧑🏽‍🍳

  • And of course noshing on latkes and other fried favorites – tostones anyone?? 😋

Additional food and both alcoholic & non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase.
