Lights and L’Chaim ushers in the spirit of the lights and liveliness of our many religious traditions into a shared, festive holiday celebration. We combine a delightful musical program followed by delicious foods of the season as an opportunity for fellowship as well as learning more about each other’s cultures. Proceeds from our event benefit a variety of community education programs.
