The Jewish Federation of the Berkshires will present a program on Chanukah with Rabbi Joshua Breindel of Temple Anshe Amunim.  As our Festival of Lights, this joyous holiday reminds us of the triumph of good over persecution, of wisdom over ignorance and of joy over despair.  Together, we'll explore the symbols and stories of this holiday, including its historical context, the deeper meaning of the Chanukiyah (Chanukah menorah) and of the tales of heroism that have inspired us for generations.  Cost $3.
