Thousands of Jewish children worldwide will join together in an incredible “Chanukah Live” Hakhel event organized by CKids International.
In preparation for Chanukah, Chabad Houses are hosting a unique children’s program, one that will link Jewish kids with their peers worldwide in a remarkable union of Yiddishkeit and fun. Designed to both entertain and inspire, it promises to be an uplifting experience for all those who attend.
Set for Sunday, December 12th, this half-hour event will usher in the holiday with a plethora of fun activities and entertainment for the whole family. From a professional illusionist to exciting raffles on a wide range of prizes, it will be a night the children will fondly remember.
The program is a continuation of several such rallies which CKids has hosted in advance of other Jewish holidays, which have all been met with wide acclaim by children and parents alike.
“There is tremendous power in bringing children from all over the world together, and we are looking forward to joining in this very special opportunity,” said Mrs. Beila Goodman of Chabad of Long Beach, New York.
Featuring a live stream of a Menorah lighting at the Kosel and followed by a magic show, dancing and singing, this Chanukah-themed rally is intended to drive home the uplifting messages of Chanukah, empowering all participants to become ambassadors of light to their families and communities.
“We hope these experiences inspire the children, leaving them with a strong sense of identity that will fortify them with the courage to be proud Jews and grow up to be active participants in their local communities,” said Rabbi Mendy Kotlarsky, executive director of Merkos 302.
The rally will be streamed live on Sunday, December 18th at 12 PM EST on https://www.chabad.org/BiggestChanukah
