Experience Details

With the COVID-19 numbers climbing and our concerns for everyone’s health and safety, we will be enjoying our Hanukkah-Shabbat festivities on Friday, December 11th in our pandemic style with our dinner pick-up beginning at 3:00 pm from Mayfield Sand Ridge Club (1545 Sheridan Rd, South Euclid, OH 44121) and our Zoom candle lighting and service is taking place in our homes at 6:00 pm, followed by dinner and some holiday fun.


Please don’t forget to RSVP for Hanukkah dinner by Sunday evening Dec. 6 at www.CelebratingJewishLife.com  or send me an email at rbhaim@hotmail.com  (Remember to tell me if you need a veggie meal).


Dinner:  Pick-up times are early because we are heading to the shortest day of the year and who wants to go out when it's dark so early!  (If you cannot make it by 4:00 pm, but still would like to get dinner, then please let me know by email, and we’ll try to arrange a drop-off by one of our CJL friends.) Remember, no need to get out of your car. We’ll safely place a delicious dinner directly into your car. 

Menu: roasted chicken, garden salad, knotted challah roll with butter pats, green bean almondine, potato latkes with sour cream and apple sauce. Vegetarian option: substitute spinach and ricotta stuffed cannelloni with marinara sauce.

In your Hanukkah care package you’ll have a copy of the service, some holiday desserts, gelt and dreidel, and candles for Shabbat and second night of Hanukkah—thank you JNF and Mindy Feigenbaum, and a few other surprises for holiday fun.

Preparing YOURSELF for Hanukkah: Remember to think about how you’d like to make your home feel special for this holiday.  Here are some suggestions: Break out your menorah and be ready to share a story about it—maybe it's history—is it a family heirloom? Or think of a family custom around the menorah.  Consider adding some Hanukkah decorations in your background. Don’t forget your Shabbat candlesticks, kiddush cup, and a pretty plate for your challah rolls.
