Despite our separation during these trying times, we can still join together as a community in saying the Chanukah blessings. You can do this by submitting a video of your household reciting the blessings over your chanukiah
(with all 8 candles lit). We plan to combine the submissions into one video, which will be edited to show the community singing as one, and presented on our website, Youtube, and social media accounts.

The deadline to submit your video is November 25.

When you have completed filming, upload your video to our Google Folder. Instructions for how to do this can be found in the folder, or you can find them here.
