Chanukah at the Landing
As the Jacksonville Jewish Community anticipates the arrival of the holiday of Chanukah; Chabad’s attention is directed towards the “16th Annual Chanukah at the Landing” event to be held on Sunday, December 25.
“If you think that Jews don’t have fun in December, you have yet to attend this exciting celebration of Jewish culture and pride” according to Rabbi Yoseph Kahanov, regional director of Chabad in Northeast Fl.
This year’s event will feature Rabbi B., a master musician, a Grand Chanukah Family Carnival and Fair,
including; Carnival Games and Inflatables, and as always, the kindling of
Jacksonville’s tallest Menorah.
A Toronto based musician and entertainer Yossi Berktin, known lovingly as Rabbi B, brings fun and excitement to his musical performances that engages and delights audiences of all ages. His humorous lyrics, memorable songs and feel good Jewish vibe, has already begun to make him the biggest star in Jewish family entertainment today. “The kids absolutely loved him and so did the adults!” say parents who have seen his performance in Toronto, CA.
Kicking off the event is the annual Chanukah Car Parade – a beautiful demonstration of Jewish pride and solidarity. Over one hundred vehicles, adorned with custom designed Chanukah flags, (free to all participants) are expected to join the caravan towards the Landing.
The convoy including Chabad of Southside, Beaches, St. Augustine, Clay County and St. Johns, will gather at 1:30 pm and depart 1:50 Sharp from Chabad regional headquarters in Mandarin. Chabad @ the Beaches will gather 1:15 and depart at 1:30 sharp. All locations will join a single procession towards the Jacksonville Landing, Hogan Street Entrance, where the Chanukah event will take place.
The fun-filled afternoon will feature a variety of kiosks and exhibitions, including:
∙ Judaica Gifts, books and more
