IGNITE! Tikkun Leil Chanukah

Festival of Jewish Culture and Learning

Dec 07 2023, 5:30PM to Dec 08 2023, 1:00AM in the Beit Alpha Floor.
NOTE: This event has already occurred.

Where light and darkness meet, let's begin Chanukah together in a community-wide gathering.

IGNITE! opens with an intergenerational, songful candle lighting, then breaks into a choose-your-own-adventure of arts-based workshops, performances and Jewish study sessions. Throughout the night, enjoy short concerts inspired by the season's themes, curated by the Ashkenaz Festival. Come early or late, stay a little or stay the whole time!

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Kosher food will be available for purchase.

The Family/Kid's Track admission provides access to the inter-generational communal candle-lighting at 6:00 p.m. and to a shorter program for families with kids ages 5 to 12, with a light kosher dinner included.
