Temple Sholom’s Annual Chanukah Lego Night
December 6, 2018 , 11:00 pm - December 7, 2018 , 12:30 amFree
Temple Sholom of Scotch Plains today announced that it will host its annual Chanukah Lego Night on Thursday, December 6 from 6 pm to 7:30 pm at Temple Sholom. Back by popular demand, the event is free and open to the public.
Participants are welcome to build as many Lego creations as their hearts desire, while reveling in dreidel games, enjoying Chanukah music, and indulging in donuts, latkes (potato pancakes) and plenty of chocolate gelt. There also will be raffles for a Lego-style menorah and a Lego-style dreidel.
In Hebrew, the word “Chanukah” means “dedication.” The name reminds us that this holiday commemorates the re-dedication of the holy Temple in Jerusalem following the Jewish victory over the Syrian-Greeks who tried to destroy the Jewish population in 165 B.C.E. Also known as the Festival of Lights, the eight-day festival celebrates the triumph of light over darkness.
WHAT: Temple Sholom’s annual Chanukah Lego Night showcases one of the largest collections of Legos in Scotch Plains! Play, sing, light the menorah, enjoy delicious holiday treats!
