Night One:

A Spotlight on Ukraine

Chanukah is about hope and the promise of a brighter future. Over the last 10 months, the ongoing Ukraine crisis has devastated hundreds of thousands of Ukraine’s Jews and their neighbors. That’s why we’ll mark the first night by coming together as a global Jewish family to focus on the current conflict and our continuous support for Ukraine’s Jews in their time of great need.

Our night’s program will include special guests and voices from Ukraine as we celebrate this community’s rich and inspiring culture through food, music, and much more.
