Let’s have a party!
Bring your Hanukkiah and we will all light our
Menorahs when the sun goes down.
What’s a party without noshing?
Starting with Oneg we need you to
bring something for the party!
Break out your frying pan! We need party food!
Traditional party food for Hanukkah is Latkes with sour cream and applesauce and sufganiyot (Jelly Donuts).
Latkes, latkes we need latkes not a little but a lot of latkes!

These are in addition to our regular Oneg foods. If you eat please BRING SOMETHING! Even if you don’t cook, you can bring Jelly Donuts from the store, applesauce, or sour cream.
Please don’t forget to bring something, anything to help with the number of extra people we will have.

World Famous Eitz Chaim Talent Show.
Please stay and support your fellow family members as they share their talents with you.

Tim Hayes will be teaching a special
workshop on Pride & Humility after Oneg.
We are doing general casting for the upcoming Purim play in the spring, gauging who wants to be involved and at what level. Actors, singers, and crew: help with sets, props, costumes, lighting, and sound, are all encouraged to participate. If you have no experience, a willingness to learn is enough.
There are no age restrictions, but you must be able to behave and be responsible for yourself. See Rusty Acheson or Ben Wilcox
During the Praise and Worship there are rooms available in the offices for all spiritual needs. See one of the ushers for directions during the Praise and Worship service prior to the Message.
Do you have a prayer room testimony? We’d like to share and encourage others with the wonders that our God has done for you! Please contact Kathleen below.
