We are excited to host Rabbi Levi, (head of the Edgware Lubavitch) for a Chanukah service on Tuesday 20th December 2022📅 @ 2.30pm at Gratitude’s Hub.
Chanukah is the Jewish eight-day, wintertime “festival of lights,” celebrated with a nightly menorah lighting, special prayers and fried foods. The Hebrew word Chanukah means “dedication,” and is named this because it celebrates the rededication of the Holy Temple.
At the heart of the festival is the nightly menorah lighting.
The menorah holds nine flames, one of which is the shamash (“attendant”), which is used to kindle the other eight lights. On the first night, we light just one flame. On the second night, an additional flame is lit. By the eighth night of Chanukah, all eight lights are kindled.

Special blessings are recited, often to a traditional melody, before the menorah is lit, and traditional songs are sung afterward.
The Gratitude Chanukah service is open to all and will include candle lighting and festive songs.
