Bubble Gum Menorah at Chabad of Chestnut Ridge

On the first night of Chanukah close to 100 people gathered for a family Chanukah Party at Chabad JEC of Chestnut Ridge. The feature attraction was the Bubble Gum Menorah, which the children had a wonderful time filling up with hundreds of gum balls.

On the Sunday before Chanukah, Chabad JEC of Chestnut Ridge, led by Rabbi Chaim Zvi & Chaya Ehrenreich, sponsored a pre-Chanukah event for children that was co-sponsored by the Nyack Library. The children participated in making olive oil and a Chanukah craft.
