Our Hanukkah celebration will be held on Saturday, December 8 at 4:00 p.m. Hanukkah, also known as the “Feast of Dedication” and “Festival of Lights”, celebrates the re-dedication of the Temple in Jerusalem after its desecration by Antiochus IV of Syria. It is not mentioned in the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament) because the events that gave rise to Hanukkah occurred after the Hebrew Scriptures were completed. However, it is specifically described or mentioned in a number of historical records, including, surprisingly, the New Testament.
The celebration is a great time for children, who will light the Hanukkah menorahs, among other things. The celebration will include special Hanukkah music (including some comedy), telling the Hanukkah story and a short discussion of a recorded 1st Century Hanukkah in which Yeshua (Jesus) participated. His statements at Hanukkah will surprise many people.
At the end of the celebration we will have special Hanukkah delights (food), including latkes and other treats.
Feel free to call us at (270) 303-9410 if you have any questions or would like additional information.
Best wishes for a happy holiday season.
