Chanukah is a wonderful time to celebrate with family and friends the great miracles that happened long ago and that still have relevance and impact in today's day and age.
Celebrating as a community adds a deeper dimension to our holiday experience and touches our hearts and souls in a most profound way. For the past 25 years CJC has brought the community together during this special time. Join us again this year as we host our 26th Community Chanukah Events.
