On Saturday night London’s young Jewish community celebrated Chanukah like never before, all in white!
Aish Young Professionals hosted London’s first ever Chanukah en Blance in a studio converted beautifully into a magnificent white wonder just off the trendy Bermondsey Street.
Young Professionals had a chance to meet each other, socialise and enjoy some wonderful Chanukah treats as well as get to know some of our YP staff and team in London.
The event featured upbeat music from DJ Dan Kraines and Richie Sax, as well as a range of gourmet canapes and drinks. Of course no Chanukah event is complete without a smorgasbord of beautiful and tasty donuts at the buffet statio. For many of those who joined us, the highlight of the evening was the experience of having hundreds of young Jews joining together in a powerful and moving Havdalah ceremony and the lighting of Menorah.
The bright light of the Chanukah menorah that shown that night will definitely be something that stays deep in the hearts of all there that night as Aish YPs rapidly growing community celebrated as young proud passionate Jews.
“It was just so nice to get out again and see people as well as participate in this fun festival. Things aren’t fully back to normal yet but it felt so normal and special at the same time to be part of this Chanukah together.” Suzy, YP attendee.
“It was an absolute pleasure celebrating Chanukah with so many young Jewish professionals in central London. The atmosphere and energy throughout were incredible, the highlight being our live Havdalah concert followed by a candle lighting. We were so glad to see so many faces together that have been apart for so long.” Rabbi Eli Birnbaum, Aish UK Director of Education.
