Temple Anshe Amunim will hold its annual Chanukah Shabbat Dinner and Community Crib beginning at 5:30 p.m. with a Shabbat Service led by the Religious School and Youth Group. This uplifting and family-friendly service will celebrate light amongst the darkness, and will feature music from the choir under the direction of Dr. Alan Gold. A latke dinner will follow in the Social Hall.
In conjunction with the event, the YACHAD Youth Group will be collecting new clothing, books, toys, baby formula, diapers and other new items for children aged 6 months through 18 years old for donation to local charities. All presents will be labeled and distributed by members of the Temple community and YACHAD to the Christian Center.
