Children of all ages, join us for a morning of Chanukah music, crafts, and holiday fun! Preschoolers will participate in a variety of activities from menorah making to potato latke people, and elementary and middle school children will create paper circuit menorahs, light-up Chanukah cards, and engineer driedles from toothpicks! This event is designed for children ages 0-12, with age appropriate activities throughout two rooms, one designated for younger children (ages 0-6) and one for older children (ages 6-12).

Special performance by Josh & the Jamtones!

Of course, what Chanukah event doesn't have latkes? There will be latkes galore with a make-your-own latke bar, complete with various toppings, and plenty of snacks for everyone. Dietary laws observed. 

Discount parking is available at the 100 Clarendon Garage, one block from the events center. Bring your parking ticket with you to get stamped.

Please bring toiletry items for Hope & Comfort, which provides essential hygiene products to support and improve the health, self-esteem and hygiene education of school-aged children and young adults in need within Greater Boston. Items requested include unisex shampoo, shampoo for textured hair, other textured haircare products (especially conditioner), unisex deodorant, kids toothbrushes, kids toothpaste, and menstrual products (unscented pads and tampons).

This program is made possible by generous donor support from CJP.
