We were honored to have the Israeli Ambassador Nissim Ben Shitrit light the Menorah at the Chanuka celebration. He explained that Chanuka is also a personal celebration for him, as it is his birthday. Rabbi Edery blessed him and all the guests and everyone said L’chaim.
Many peope joined the Chanuka Party, the hall was packed. Everyone loved festive buffet style dinner, with lots of food, Chanukah doughnuts and great Chanuka atmosphere.
A huge thank you to Liane Wakabayashi for the creative, colorful and fun Chanuka art project that she organized and did with the many kids who came. All the children had a greatly enjoyed the Arts and crafts and the Chanuka sweets bag they each received.
