Bring your voice, a ukulele or guitar (not required) and a smile as we gather together to sing the songs of Christmas and Hanukkah.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) December 19, 2019
Pop on over to Sim Shalom Live and join Rabbi Steve Blane and guest Pastor Robert Brashear for a Holiday singalong at Bethesda Terrace in Central Park on Sunday, December 22nd. Since Hanukah and Christmas coincide this year it only makes sense to enjoy an interfaith celebration to welcome the season of lights.
The event is December 22nd from 2:00 - 3:00pm and is free but please visit here to register and for more information.
Hanukah is celebrated for eight days and is called the Festival of Lights to commemorate the miracle of oil that burned for eight days. Hanukkah is a holiday that commemorates the Jewish recapture and rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem in 164 BCE.
