Happy Chanukah

It is always a joy to come together on some of the darkest nights of the year to celebrate the miracle of Chanukah.

We are inviting all of our kehillah to join us each night as we come together to light the candles as a community. Please see below for the schedule and links. Also, on the eighth night, we invite you to a special in-person Chanukah party. We look forward to celebrating with you!

CNS Chanukah Party 2021 (In-Person!)

Sunday, December 5, 5:00- 7:00pm

Chanukah is here! Everyone is invited to join us for a special in-person Chanukah party. Together we’ll light candles, sing songs, and enjoy treats while following our Covid health and safety protocols.

We will also have a gift exchange, so please bring a wrapped gift worth no more than $20 to offer, and you will have the opportunity to receive a gift.

You must register to attend this event

Please remember to bring packages of toilet paper for the Men’s Club TP drive for Neighborhood House. It is an important and appreciated mitzvah project that we do each year. Thank you.

Men’s Club Toilet Paper Drive for Neighborhood House

Through December 12

It’s that time of year to again begin collecting rolls of toilet paper to donate to Neighborhood House. It’s a true mitzvah for their clients in need.

You can drop off your donation in the lobby at CNS, during the bag pick-up, or at the Chanukah party.

The Men’s club can also pick it up, if easier or you can also make a monetary donation – if you choose either of these routes, please contact Ron Morris at r.morris3@comcast.net.

Men’s Club wishes you a safe and healthy Chanukah and New Year.
