First Night Chanukah and ARK

Sunday 28 Nov at 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join us in person or on Zoom for First Night Chanukah candle lighting and special ARK – with a chocolate theme – in aid of Chai Cancer Care. There will be a short telling of the Chanukah story, candle lighting with singing led by Julian Levy, followed by a child and adult friendly chocolate quiz with prizes at 4.30pm

At 5.00pm refreshments, including doughnuts and lots of chocolate, will be provided.

Menorah member Clarissa Hyman will then talk about a new book, ‘Babka, Boulou and Blintzes – Chocolate and the Jews’, – a beautifully illustrated book, to which Clarissa has contributed. Signed copies will be on sale in support of Chai Cancer Care, just in time for Chanukah and seasonal present giving.

All families and children are welcome as well as regular ARK attendees. Admission is free but please let us know of your attendance in advance by emailing

See Zoom details at the bottom of Shavuon.
