November 28th - Dec. 5th
Chanukah is the Jewish eight-day, wintertime “festival of lights, ” celebrated with a nightly menorah lighting, special prayers and fried foods. The Hebrew word Chanukah means “dedication, ” and is thus named because it celebrates the rededication of the Holy Temple. Chanukah begins on the eve of Kislev 25 and continues for eight days.
Join Bloomington in a public display of unity at this exciting menorah lighting ceremony at 6 p.m. Nov. 30 at Sample Gates. This event is free of charge and for both IU Students and Bloomington community. Make this your special Chanukah celebration.
