HHBJC Happenings & Save the Dates

Our HHBJC ANNUAL FAMILY/COMMUNITY CHANUKAH DINNER was FANTABULOUS! The food was delicious with a great variety, something for everyone, from Fortune Glatt Kosher Chinese. I rarely eat Chinese food so it was a real treat for me. The desserts were also delicious, wonderful fresh fruit, parve ice cream sundaes and the best sufganiot I’ve had. We had a fabulous magician, face painting for kids and adults alike and of course we had a jellybean contest. I was thrilled to be there with our Rabbi David Wise and Rabbi Gary Kessler as we said the prayers together over the candles, made the Hamotzi and sang Chanukah songs together. We had over 100 people who attended. It was such a warm and fun way to celebrate with our community, family and friends! Let’s all come again next year, as we continue our tradition together. Thank you to our dear Maris Blechner who was the overall chairperson. You are amazing as always! Thank you to Janet Hiller Jacobowitz for taking care of the arrangements for the wonderful food. Thank you to Amanda Menzie and her wonderful son Sam (who just recently became a Bar Mitzvah) who set up all the tables & music sheets with our Chanukah songs and grab bags. Great job!
