About the event

Friday Night Live Festival of Lights Shabbat Service

SOUND ON/OFF

Temple Emanu-El invites you to a special Festival of Lights Shabbat service that will feature a performance of Chanukah songs, as well as “Sabbath Prayer” and “Sunrise, Sunset,” by Steven Skybell, who played Tevye in the recent Yiddish production of Fiddler on the Roof, Jennifer Babiak, who played Golde, and Lauren Jeanne Thomas, der fidler.

Please join us to celebrate the Maccabees’ triumph and the miraculous rededication of our Temple in Jerusalem with candle lighting, beautiful and haunting music and festive sufganiyot to go!!!

Temple Emanu-El is open to all who would worship with us in peace. Attending in person? Please read our Covid guidelines. All services are broadcast live on Experience Emanu-El, Facebook and YouTube.

This program is sponsored by the Tisch family.
