December 2023 Chai Lites

Hello Temple Beth Shalom Members and Friends, the December 2023 Chai Lites are here for your reading pleasure and edification!  Many thanks to our monthly columnists and our other faithful content contributors, especially to our President and Editor, Lorraine Mixter.

Chanukah is more meaningful than ever this year as our family, friends, and other loved ones in Israel are engaged in another struggle for strength and presence in their Jewish homeland.  We can celebrate the holiday and also observe its important meaning by continuing to come together this Friday for the Chanukah dinner and celebration, followed by a traditional Shabbat service.  You still have a few days left to get your reservation in for the dinner and lighting the chanukiyot, as shown on the flyer below:
