Join us for a night to celebrate and share the light at this annual Hanukkah party featuring a full meal, ceremony and Klezmer band to follow!
This ticketed event will feature a delicious vegetarian holiday meal prepared by Zenbarn, a Waterbury restaurant and event space, including gourmet latkes (Hanukkah’s famous potato pancakes) and mediterranean-inspired dishes, plus a community menorah-lighting ceremony. Following the meal there will be a world-class Klezmer band Klezwoods. A portion of proceeds from the night will go to support the emergency fuel assistance program at Capstone Community Action.
Klezwoods is a Boston-based amalgam of strings, horns, and percussion that melds the spirit of traditional klezmer and balkan music with modern grooves, improvisation and east coast attitude.
Rabbi David Fainsilber, one of the events main organizers and rabbi of the Jewish Community of Greater Stowe, said “amidst all of the darkness that surrounds our lives and our society, this is a time to increase the light and celebrate and to show the power of our people giving back and supporting those in need…” “It’s a partnership between our congregations, the community and local businesses and I am so grateful we are all coming together.”
This event is presented by the Jewish Community of Greater Stowe (JCOGS) in partnership with Jewish Communities of Vermont, Beth Jacob Synagogue in Montpelier, Ruach haMaqom in Burlington, Ohavi Zedek in Burlington, Temple Sinai Vermont in South Burlington, Living Tree Alliance in Moretown, and Hadassah VT.
