The free event will be at 10:00 a.m. in the store at 4030 N.E. Halsey St. on Sunday December 6. There will also be Hanukkah refreshments and music.
“During our long history Jews have learned to become creative,” said Mushka Wilhelm, director of Chabad Hebrew School. “Who would think that random items from Orchard Supply Hardware could become the enduring symbol of freedom that the menorah represents?”
“Hanukkah is a time when we rejoice in the freedom and liberty the Maccabees fought for and that we enjoy today in America,” said Rabbi Chaim Wilhelm, of Chabad Northeast Portland. “We pride ourselves on being a place where everyone is family, and we are excited about sharing the holiday joy and light with all our neighbors and friends.”
Hanukkah is from December 6 to December 14 this year. For more information on the event, visit www.jewishnortheast.com or call (503) 309-4490.
