Chaunkah events galore are taking place throughout the United Kingdom next week.
Parties will take place at shuls, Jewish youth groups, schools and universities during the festival.
From candle lighting ceremonies to entertainers, candle making and quizzes, Jewish communities are set for a fun-filled plethora of activities.
In Central London, a giant Menorah will be lit at Trafalgar Square on Tuesday.
But that is not the only high profile lighting as city centre events are planned in Manchester and Leeds to name just two cities.
Amongst a number of shuls, The Centre at Borehamwood & Elstree Synagogue kicked off festivities at a pre-Chanukah family treasure hunt and party for over 50 people last Sunday.
Families solved clues and created matchbox Chanukiah’s at The Venue in Borehamwood.
The event also included an entertainer, food and music.
“This was a great opportunity for local families to get in the Chanukah mood with of course masses of doughnuts,” said co-organiser Rabbi Adam Edwards.
He added, “The Centre is a new social and educational initiative providing programmes, events and fun for Jewish families in Borehamwood.”
Shuls throughout London have specific Chanukah activities planned.
Members should contact shul offices for details.
