Dear Macharniks and friends of Machar,

Don’t miss the event of the holiday season!

Register now for “Hanukkah: A Celebration of Freedom,” 3:30pm–5:30pm on Sunday December 5, 2021, at the Silver Spring Civic Building!

Congressman Jamie Raskin (MD 08) will celebrate Hanukkah with us at this fun, free, multigenerational party.

We’ll have music, crafts, storytelling, and activities for all ages! We’ll learn the real history of Hanukkah. Our movement’s Jews for a Secular Democracy initiative will also honor Representative Raskin with the Constitutional Defender Award for his commitment to the separation of religion and government, and he will briefly address the gathering.

FREE and all are welcome.
No Jewish knowledge required.
A great opportunity to invite friends and family to share Machar’s community joy!
Please help spread the word by sharing the graphic below.
