Join Havurah on the Hill, as we mark each of the eight nights of Chanukah with a festive activity. Whether you are a foodie, a gamer, a wino or just someone who can’t get enough of the festival of lights, travel to the different Boston boroughs to make latkes, taste wine, spin dreidels and meet new people. Events are free and tickets are limited. Please sign up for only one location so that we can welcome as many people as possible to celebrate with us. Address provided in confirmation email upon registering.
Please bring your own chanukiah and candles. Don't have one! No problem! You will leave with one so that you can celebrate the other nights in your own home with friends and family.
