Local Synagogues Come Together For Hanukkah Events In Santa Clarita

Hanukkah has been celebrated by Jewish families across the world for thousands of years. This year, synagogues and Jewish congregations around the Santa Clarita Valley want to invite the community to celebrate the Festival of Lights with special events and services.

This year, Hanukkah begins on Wednesday at sundown and ends on Thursday, Dec. 5 at sundown.

The eight-day holiday commemorates the rededication of the Jewish temple after the occupying Syrians had been successfully driven out of Jerusalem around 165 B.C., according to Jewish tradition.

Santa Clarita’s three Jewish synagogues, Temple Beth Ami, Congregation Beth Shalom and the Chabad Jewish Center are all hosting separate services, in addition to coming together for community events.

Congregation Beth Shalom of Santa Clarita

On Friday at 8 p.m., Beth Shalom will host a Hanukkah program at their campus on Centre Pointe Parkway. The evening will feature a guest cantor–a Jewish prayer leader who specializes in prayers set to music. The service is free and open to the public. Call  661-254-2411 for more information.

Temple Beth Ami

Temple Beth Ami will also host a Hanukkah service on Friday at 8 p.m. Held at their synagogue on Hilse Lane in Newhall, the program will feature a traditional Sabbath service, Hanukkah songs and special recognition for one Beth Ami family, selected for the Volunteer Family of the Year Award. Call 661-255-6410 for more information.

Chabad of the Greater Santa Clarita Valley

Another Friday night service is happening at the Chabad Jewish Center on Lyons Avenue in Newhall at 6 p.m. The joint Thanksgiving and Hanukkah celebration will feature a four course meal, holiday songs and a Hanukkah game. Tickets are $20 per person. RSVP to 661-254-3434.
