Enjoy a full Israeli-style buffet, with delicious falafel and hummus, and a customize-your-own doughnut station. Guests will also have the unique opportunity to make their own dreidel and Hanukkah-themed slime! All families welcome to join! Sponsorship opportunities are still available. Contact Rabbi Mendy for more information.  

Hanukkah, the festival of lights, is the most widely celebrated of all Jewish holidays. The festival marks the freedom of expression, commemorating the Jewish victory against religious persecution – “Light over Might”. Thanks to the great vision of the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, public menorah lightings are hosted all over the world and symbolize the universal message of cultural tolerance, diversity and the ultimate victory of light over darkness through spreading goodness and kindness to all.  

In addition to the menorah on Wasilla Lake, the Mat-Su Jewish Center will be placing a 9-foot menorah in downtown Palmer. We will be lighting the menorah in Palmer every night of Hanukkah, beginning Saturday, December 12th at 5:30PM. The Palmer menorah is co-sponsored by Janet Kincaid, Randi Perlman and an anonymous sponsor.
