DESCRIPTION: Who is "Jewish enough"? Who is "too Jewish"? And who decides? Like us, the Jews of 2,000 years ago struggled to draw boundaries between Jewish and not Jewish, between being distinctively Jewish vs. assimilating into an attractive and welcoming mainstream culture. That's what the story of Hanukah is about. Join us to explore our identities, Jewish, not-Jewish, or not-sure, in light of the Hanukah story, and to enjoy a delicious, no-experience-necessary Shabbat dinner, on Friday, December 18.
All are welcome!
Childcare free by reservation.
