The Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode is excited to offer – for the first time – the Jewish Outreach Institute’s free Hanukkah Helper Holiday prep workshop.  Designed initially with the interfaith family in mind, this informal, interactive, hands-on program was created to be a fun evening for anyone who wants to learn more about celebrating Hanukkah in an enjoyable and meaningful way.

In addition to discussing the various stories of Hanukkah (yes, there are more than one), participants will ponder the usual “December Dilemma” questions, learn Hanukkah songs, light Hanukkah candles, play the game of dreidel and make (and eat!) latkes.

“We’ve successfully run similar programs around Passover and, thanks to the generous funding by the Women’s Alliance Endowment Fund, we’re excited to add the free Hanukkah Helper program this year,” says Kit Haspel, Director of Interfaith Outreach, who will be running the workshop with the able assistance of Chef Georgina Sarpong, who will supervise the making of the latkes. “My children will tell you I’m a klutz in the kitchen,” laughs Haspel.

Asked to define interfaith outreach more broadly, Haspel offered, “It is reaching out to interfaith families with a message of welcome, acceptance, and inclusiveness and with a willingness to teach them what they want to learn about Judaism and to guide them along the way if they wish.”

The program will be held at the Alliance on Thursday, Nov. 14, from 7:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. Pre-registration is encouraged.
