Festival Celebrations

Challah BabyThe Jewish calendar gives us so many reasons to come together with family, friends, and community to celebrate.

DJC holiday celebrations include:

  • Singing, decorating, and sitting in the sukkah during Sukkot
  • Lighting up a dark December night with Chanukah
  • A mystical meal for Tu B’shvat
  • Vampy, campy megillah reading and Purim celebration
  • Community members hosting one another for Pesach
  • Earth Hour havdalah and music by candlelight
  • All-night Shavuot learning

Before each holiday, Rabbi Miriam offers learning sessions to prepare our hearts and minds, exploring both the practical “how-to” of the upcoming holiday, and the depth of meaning and contemporary significance of each festival.
