Celebrate Hanukkah with B'nai Torah!

Hanukkah, which begins Sunday night, December 22, is about creating more light in the world. The Maccabees came into a Temple that had been almost emptied of holiness, but they refused to give up. They lit the menorah, and God helped the light grow. Now, each night, we add another candle. We add holiness and push away darkness one light at a time.

We are very excited to help you bring more light to your Hanukkah! Please see below to learn more about our Hanukkah Happenings.
