admin - Thursday, December 10, 2015

So you’re walking in a winter wonderland, and you’re thinking, “Baby it really is cold outside,” but before Jack Frost nips at your nose and sends you roasting chestnuts by an open fire, take a moment and enjoy one of Pittsburgh’s many winter activities.    

Pittsburgh Hanukkah Celebrations
Even though Hanukkah is winding down, there are still events in Pittsburgh catered to this Jewish holiday. Chabad of Pittsburgh kicked off Hanukkah with its grand menorah lighting in Oakland last Sunday. This event featured the Yeshiva Boys Choir, a juggling show, live music, doughnuts, chocolate Hanukkah Gelt, and a 12’ Menorah. Now, this Friday starting at 5:15 p.m., Chabad hosts its Community Shabbat Dinner. Throughout the year, this organization strives to create a positive Jewish experience.
