Center to celebrate Chanukah with community
A community Chanukah celebration will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 12, featuring a live olive press show, delicious latkes and doughnuts, and arts and crafts and face painting for children.
It will be held from 5:30 until 7:30 p.m. at the Chabad Jewish Center at 19626 76th Ave. West in Lynnwood.
"Chanukah is a time for rejoicing in the freedom to openly celebrate our values; the community celebration and public Menorah lighting proclaim that message,” said Rabbi Berel Paltiel, director of the Snohomish County Jewish Center.
At the Chanukah celebration children will learn how real olive oil is made. Participants will squeeze, press, pound and pulverize authentic olives into fresh olive oil, just like the ancient Maccabees, at an exciting hands-on workshop centered on a genuine olive oil hand press.
The event will also feature face painting, Chanukah crafts involving decorating your very own ‘dreidel’ (Chanukah top). Traditional Holiday Potato ‘Latkes’ (pancakes) and chocolate Chanukah 'Gelt' (coins) will be available as well.
