The Adams Street Shul

Congregation Agudas Achim Anshei Sfard

chanukah-party-producersOn Saturday night, December 8, 2012, we celebrated the first night of Chanukah together, at our 101st (yes, that's three digits) Annual Chanukah Party.  For those who couldn't be there, we are happy to provide the video below.

The video begins upstairs in the sanctuary, with a three-minute drash, followed by three-minutes of joke-telling, while the children downstairs were enjoying a story-telling session. 

The rest of the video is of the fun and games and feasting at the party in the Elmer Lippin Social Hall.  Enjoy! 

Many thanks to Zack Drapkin;  Doron Cheses;  Uriya, Barak and Odeya Durani;  Yoki Fleischmann;  and Sarah Drapkin for producing the event.  And to Jane and Phil Rosen for organizing the group; and to Benyomin and Nechama Fleischmann for all sorts of facilitation; and to Sarah and Jordan Wagner for the latkes and video respectively.

We hope you enjoy the video.  Donations to support our educational programs and their availability on the Internet are always welcome.  

And now here's the video:
