Chanukah 2021 / חֲנוּכָּה 5782

 

Chanukah (Hanukkah, the Jewish festival of rededication) for Hebrew Year 5782 begins at sundown on Sunday, 28 November 2021 and ends at nightfall on Monday, 6 December 2021.

Hanukkah (Hebrew: חֲנֻכָּה, usually spelled חנוכה pronounced [χanuˈka] in Modern Hebrew, also romanized as Chanukah or Chanuka), also known as the Festival of Lights, is an eight-day Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple (the Second Temple) in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt of the 2nd century BCE. Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days, starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, which may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar.

Parashat Vayeshev tells the stories of how Jacob's other sons sold Joseph into captivity in Egypt, how Judah wronged his daughter-in-law Tamar who then tricked him into fulfilling his oath, and how Joseph served Potiphar and was imprisoned when falsely accused of assaulting Potiphar's wife.

FROM THE DESK OF RABBI ROSENBERG

 

Dear Friends,

In-person Shabbat services are back at Temple Isaiah!

Join us this November 26th and 27th as our In-person Shabbat services for those who are vaccinated, have resumed. (Friday night 7:30pm and Shabbat Morning at 10:00am) a new Torah discussion component will be added during Shabbat morning services. It is wonderful to worship together in our beautiful synagogue. We had a wonderful turnout last Friday night and looking forward to this week! 

Shabbat services will also be broadcast on our Facebook page at Temple Isaiah Palm Springs. My Friday night topic will be  “The true miracle of Chanukah may not be what you think, it’s even better.”

Join us at 5:00pm on Sunday, November 28th, for the first night of Chanukah, as we light our giant Chanukiyah in the Temple parking lot and sing some great Chanukah songs! 

Please bring your vaccination card and a face mask to all of our Chanukah events.

THEN GET READY TO CHANU-QUE!!!

Plan to attend our Chanukah BBQ on Sunday, December 5th, beginning at 3:00pm, with the lighting of our giant outdoor Chanukiah at sunset. There will be great food, fun, music and of course….Chanukah Bingo!!

Our beloved friend Doug Morton truly appreciates the tremendous amount of get well wishes he and the Temple have received. We wish him Refuah Shelaymah, may God bless Doug with strength and health, both of body and spirit.

In the next few weeks, we will be rolling out our adult education programming, re-starting our bereavement group and a new offering called “breakfast with the rabbi,” as well as a new season of “In Conversation.

”In Conversation” will be able to be viewed on our Facebook page, Temple Isaiah Palm Springs and will also be available on Zoom Webinar. 

After January, we will be offering an adult B’nai mitzvah class, as well as a “re-introduction to Judaism” course. This class is perfect for those who want to learn more their Jewish heritage or have an interest in Judaism for the first time and perhaps just a little curious. All of the Rabbi’s educational programs will also be live-streamed. 

Henei ma tov umanaim Shevet achim gam yachad! It feels so wonderful to be able gather again with each other. 

Let us continue to build together,

Rabbi Steven Rosenberg
