Eight Nights of Chanukah, Part VII

Melissa Wall celebrates the seventh night of Chanukah, and shares her love of Israeli music and the Jewish value of Ahavat Yisrael (Love for Israel)

Watch Melissa’s Video!

Activity ideas:  Give tzedakah to an Israeli organization or a local Jewish organization; watch an Israeli or Jewish-themed film together & discuss over popcorn; put on Israeli music or Klezmer and dance! Give to an organization that promotes religious freedom in Israel such as the Israel Religious Action Center.

Watch for these videos every morning in your inbox, or check the  Vassar Temple YouTube Channel.

We hope that you will join in the celebration by lighting, and celebrating these mitzvot, in your own homes!

How to Light Chanukah Candles

You can also celebrate religious freedom by joining Women of the Wall’s “It’s My Right To Light” Campaign, which is fighting for the inclusion of women in Israel’s national Chanukiyah lighting ceremony at the Western Wall in Jerusalem.
