Once again, it was a festive Chanukah at CRT this year. On Dec. 15, prior to Shabbat services, the fourth night of Chanukah, the celebration included a dinner served in the social hall.
In keeping with tradition, those attending the service brought their menorahs and 5 candles. There was a nice assortment of menorahs, some small, others large in varying forms and designs. Everyone lit their respective menorahs as the congregation recited the Chanukah blessings. Then Rachel led as everyone sang Ma’oz Tzur, followed by several other popular Chanukah songs.
Several children accompanied Rachel on the bimah including Ben, Benji, Allie, Jacob, Ethan, Spencer and Nate.
The Chanukah service also coincided with Saralee and Bob Stein’s 50th wedding anniversary. If you missed the post on this site about that, you can see it here.
