Chanukah begins on Sunday, December 18th. For the following week, Jewish families around the world will gather to celebrate the Festival of Lights with latkes, dreidels, gifts, giving back and more. You can join a community celebration or use our resources to create a celebration at home. Chanukah ends at sundown on Monday, December 6th.
Grandparents make a huge difference in shaping the Jewish identity of successive generations, and we are so delighted that you enrolled your grandchild(ren) in PJ Library. We are creating resources and curated events that are great for building connections between grandparents and their grandchildren.
Chanukah comes at the darkest time of year—and so the illumination we add to the world each night by lighting the candles on the menorah is even more necessary. The light and warmth we emit can inspire others. There are so many ways to make Chanukah meaningful for your family and inspiring to the community. Read on for tips to connect around the holiday and some suggested events for your family.
