All Riverdale kids and their grownups are welcome to join the Bayit team, youth leaders, and families from Kinneret Day School for a Chanukah celebration at the Bayit! Please come in good health, wearing a mask, and wash/sanitize hands when you arrive. We will offer indoor space for activities as well as outdoor space on the terrace to eat your Chanukah treats.

There will be a candle lighting ceremony with a Rabbi Steven Exler and Rabbi Aaron Frank at 4:30pm.

This program will feature Chanukah Arts & Crafts, chocolate, Dunkin Donuts, dreidels, and Chanukah songs performed by Wally Levis. Wally is a Riverdale musician who serves as a volunteer with the Visiting Nurses Service of New York and participates in the nationwide program "Musicians on Call," which brings the healing power of music directly to the bedsides of patients and their families.
