Festivals

The festival of Chanukah falls in December. Being determined by a lunar calender it shifts slightly each year. If you want to learn more about this charming winter festival click here to download your free copy of the ‘Social Justice Chanukah Guide’. This in-depth guide was written and edited by Liberal Judaism’s social justice consultant Amelia Viney. It covers topics including the tradition of giving, spiritual illumination, bullying, political activism, energy efficiency and bringing social justice into your congregation. The pack is full of ideas, articles and discussion topics, and there’s even a fun quiz for kids and a latke recipe. Amelia said: “I hope this Chanukah guide will inspire families and communities to remember the convictions of our Chanukah heroes, and celebrate with social justice in mind.” Wishing you Chag Chanukah Sameach (A Happy Chanukah Festival).
