Temple Beth Shalom

​​​​​​

Chanukah party schedule:

Adult program, 4:30-5:30 p.m.: Happy hour and games
Happy hour will take place outdoors under the space heaters, and games will take place in the social hall. TBS Membership Committee will host the games. Music with Sue Windham.

Family and children’s program
, 4:30-5:30 p.m.:
Join us for an early evening walk that celebrates Chanukah’s timeless theme of light in the darkness. First, kids will make their own mason jar lanterns (all materials provided) in the Gan Rachel Room. Then they will use their lanterns to discover the PJ Library book Chanukah Lights Everywhere in the temple courtyard.

5:30 p.m.: Candle-lighting led by Rabbi Tamar and Sue Windham (bring your own Chanukiah)

5:50 p.m.: Share your own Chanukah memories with other community members as part of our in-person or Zoom Chanukah celebration. Follow your curiosity and join us! This activity will be led by the “Our Stories, Our Community” team 

And finally, we can’t have a Chanukah party without sufganiyot! All attendees will leave with one, courtesy of Congregation Emanu-El.

Also: Please bring new socks so the community can make a generous donation to a homeless shelter.

Make a reservation for the event

What is PJ Library?
PJ Library sends free, award-winning books that celebrate Jewish values and culture to families with children 6 months through 8 years old.

How do I sign up?
Signing up is free, easy, and takes less than 3 minutes. Join today!

Can older kids receive books?
Kids ages 9-12 can join PJ Our Way™ to choose their own free chapter books! Kids in both age groups? Sign up for both!


What is PJ Our Way?
PJ Our Way is an extension of the much-beloved PJ Library program for kids from 9 to 12 years old! Instead of having a predetermined book sent to them each month, PJOW kids can choose one of several monthly book options, so they can customize the program to their tastes!

Like PJ Library, PJOW is free to families, and PJ Library alumni (children who have aged out of PJ’s 0-8 age range) are highly encouraged to enroll! There’s currently no limit to how many kids the Inland Northwest can include in this program, so we’re very excited to present it to the community!
