All Ages

Date : Thursday, Dec 07

Time : 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Location : Edlavitch DCJCC
1529 Sixteenth Street, NW, Washington, DC

Come celebrate the first night of Chanukah with other Jews of Color and their families!

Enrollment closed

Join us to celebrate the first night of Chanukah. We'll light the menorah, eat delicious latkes and sufganiyot, spin dreidels, do crafts, and watch the short movie Blewish. Being Blewish (Black & Jewish) can be frustrating, especially when people frequently assume that someone can't be Jewish just because they're Black. Blewish is the story of a boy stuck in the middle. Torn between either concealing or embracing his full identity, he learns how he can help create a world where no other child feels the pressure of having to make that choice again.

When: Thursday, December 7, from 6:30 – 8:30 PM

Where: The Edlavitch DC Jewish Community Center

Registration: Free to attend, but registration is required. Please make sure to register all household members who will attend.

Please note this holiday celebration is specifically curated for community members who identify as Jews of Color and for their families. If you do not identify as being part of this community, we invite you to attend a different Chanukah event happening at the EDCJCC instead.

This event is brought to you in partnership with Washington Hebrew Congregation’s JOC Affinity Group and Adas Israel Congregation's Jews of Color Affinity Group.
