I'd like to personally thank everyone who attended, volunteered for, and participated in last night's wonderful Chanukah dinner. We're so glad you celebrated with Emanuel! Over 170 guests enjoyed latkes crafted by our Miraculous Latke Team with potatoes and onions donated by Peter Karas of EZ Spuds. Mr. Karas' moving story of receiving a free childhood education sponsored by friends/neighbors who were Holocaust survivors never fails to inspire me. His lifelong dedication towards supporting the Jewish community has come to fruition in a myriad of ways- including serving as our perpetual potato man. Thank you, Mr. Karas!
One of my favorite things about observing Chanukah at Emanuel is that I don't have to light candles alone. Please feel free to stop by the Emanuel office on Monday, 12/23 or Thursday, 12/26 at 4pm or Friday, 12/27 at 2pm to join the staff for a brief candle lighting. We'd love to have you!
Warmest wishes, Jessica Katz Director of Operations
