Kehillah’s Carytown Hanukkah Returns for 2021


We are thrilled to once again bring Hanukkah to Carytown with our third annual Hanukkah festival on Saturday, Dec. 4 from 4:30 to 7 p.m.

This year’s partner, Ten Thousand Villages, a nonprofit, global maker‑to‑market store, will host the event.

“It is truly a miracle to bring Richmond together in this public celebration of Hanukkah,” said Rabbi Patrick Beaulier. “After a year of darkness comes light.”

Festivities will include a public Menorah lighting and Jewish music, free latkes courtesy of Perly’s Delicatessen, hot chocolate provided by Ten Thousand Villages, dreidel games and prizes, Kids’ Story Time, as well as a kitschy Hanukkah market.

Rabbi Patrick will have a booth set up to answer any questions related to Kehillah, the holiday, or Judaism in general. This is a casual, contemporary gathering: no Hebrew experience or membership required. Interfaith and family friendly.

All are welcome. We will gather outside in the parking lot, so dress warmly!

The event is free entry, but donations are encouraged to benefit Kehillah’s holiday programming. Support this event with a donation here. All donations help us reduce the cost of the event and make it open to more people.
