Temple Sholom of Scotch Plains will host its annual Chanukah Lego Night on Thursday, December 12
from 6 pm to 7:30 pm at Temple Sholom, 1925 Lake Avenue, Scotch Plains, NJ.
Back by popular demand, the event is free and open to the public.
Participants are welcome to build as many Lego creations as their hearts desire, while
reveling in dreidel games, enjoying Chanukah music, and indulging in donuts, latkes
(potato pancakes) and plenty of chocolate gelt.
In Hebrew, the word “Chanukah” means “dedication.” The name reminds us that this
holiday commemorates the re-dedication of the holy Temple in Jerusalem following the
Jewish victory over the Syrian-Greeks who tried to destroy the Jewish population in 165
B.C.E. Also known as the Festival of Lights, the eight-day festival celebrates the triumph
of light over darkness.
