2nd Annual Chanukah Family Celebration & Public Menorah Lighting
12/28/2016 – 5:30PM
Mat-Su Jewish Center
Palmer Train Depot
FREE Event

It’s that wonderful time of year again, with all things festive and glittering abound, a time to celebrate and cherish the many holiday traditions that surround us. It’s time for the Valley’s Second Annual Chanukah Family Celebration and Public Menorah Lighting. You are all invited to the Palmer Train Depot on Wednesday, December 28th at 5:30 pm to join the Mat-Su Jewish Center for a special evening of Chanukah fun and tradition!

There will be a delicious Israeli-themed buffet with a falafel bar, a latke station, a yummy make-your-own donut station and other tantalizing holiday treats. Create your own wooden dreidel and play with it at our dreidel station, jump in a dreidel bounce house, and partake in other Chanukah crafts and games! Watch an incredible and inspirational performance by the Valley’s very own Jewish Kids Club, hear holiday greetings from local dignitaries, and join us as we light a giant nine-foot Menorah and sing traditional Chanukah songs.

Last year at the first event of its kind in the Valley, we had a tremendous turnout, and the depot was filled with friends and neighbors helping us celebrate the miracle of Chanukah, the Festival of Lights. This year promises to be even more special and exciting, especially when the Jewish Kids Club performs! This event, hosted by Rabbi Mendy and Chaya Greenberg, is free and open to the public. Everyone is welcome!

Corporate and private sponsorship opportunities are available. Contact Rabbi Mendy at 907-350-1787 or for more information.  

We hope you’ll join us on December 28th to celebrate a new tradition in the Valley. Come help us brighten the dark nights of our Alaskan winter by lighting the Chanukah Menorah and be part of the Festival of Lights!
