Ignite! Tikkun Leil Chanukah. Beth Tzedec Synagogue, Thursday, December 7, 6 PM

Where light and darkness meet, let's begin Chanukah together in a community-wide gathering.

IGNITE! opens with an intergenerational, songful candle lighting, then breaks into a choose-your-own-adventure of arts-based workshops, performances, and Jewish study sessions including teaching by our Rabbi Goldstein.

Throughout the night, enjoy short concerts inspired by the themes of the season, curated by the Ashkenaz Festival. Come early or late, stay a little or stay the whole time!

Kosher food is available for purchase.

The Family/Kid's Track admission provides access to the inter-generational communal candle-lighting at 6:00 p.m. and to a shorter program for families with kids ages 5 to 12, with a light kosher dinner included.
