This year the Jewish Festival of Lights (Chanukah or Hanukkah) is observed beginning on December 24 at sundown and continues for eight nights. It is a joyous holiday commemorating the Jews of Judea's victory over the rule of the Greeks some 2,200 years ago. The Jewish Community of Amelia Island (JCAI) is holding its Chanukah party at the Property Owners Clubhouse in the Omni Amelia Island Plantation, and is open to all those who wish to celebrate on the first night of Chanukah, December 24 at 6 p.m.
In addition to a latke cooking contest, everyone brings an appetizer, entrée, or dessert to share. Bring your family menorah and join in the fun! For more information call Debbie Price at (904) 310-6060 or (203) 313-3925.
