BEDFORD, N.Y. --Temple Shaaray Tefila in Bedford Corners will celebrate Hanukkah with the community at its congregation on Friday, Dec. 19.
Begin the evening with a traditional holiday dinner (latkes will be included) at 6 p.m.
Residents are asked to bring menorahs from home as the congregation will light the candles together to celebrate the festival of Hanukkah at the Shabbat service at 7 p.m. A special Oneg will follow with many holiday treats like chocolate gelt, jelly doughnuts and more.
The celebration will also include a display of creative menorahs made by the temple’s religious school students. Additionally, the temple will collect gently used winter coats for local families in need.
