Picture This: Jewish Heritage Day

Jewish Heritage Day at the 29th Annual Festival of Trees and Lights, was held Sunday, November 11. The day showcased chanukiahs, dreidels and Chanukah items from four of the area’s synagogues. The Lost Tribe, a klezmer band, performed while dreidels and gelt were handed out to more than 7,000 visitors. Tami Penner gave out doughnuts and Cheri Ben David and Robbyn McClain read Chanukah stories. Other volunteers were Barbara Isaacs, Hannah Geller, Liz Hemmer, Jilly Lustig, Yael Wagner and Becca Waller.  Honi Marleen Goldman chaired the Lights exhibit, which was sponsored by the Jewish Community Relations Council.  Festival of Trees and Lights was presented by Republic Bank and sponsored in part by Heaven Hill. The proceeds support Norton Children’s Hospital’s Jennifer Lawrence Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. (photos provided)
