Bring the Festival of Lights to Elderly Jews with Koleinu

Many elderly Jews are shuttered away from the welcoming embrace of the light of Chanukah.  During Chanukah, CBST will bring Chanukah candle lighting to Jewish Home Life Care. Join CBST for a few hours one evening at sundown starting at 4:30pm from December 8th to 15th in creating a Festival of Light for those elders who may have no family with whom to light candles. Lead candle lightings on one or more of the Jewish Home's 16 floors, sing, and shmooze with residents. Each lighting takes between 10 and 20 minutes.

To register, email chanukahlighting@cbst.org  with your name, the date(s) and time(s) that you're able to volunteer, and your contact information by Monday, December 3rd so that the Jewish Home can organize their volunteer efforts.

Saturday, December 8th  – Saturday, December 15th , 4:30 or 5:30pm
