Emmy residents, families and friends celebrated Chanukah with joyous and meaningful events.       On Saturday 12th December, a special Shabbat Service and Kiddush was held in the Goldschlager family Synagogue.  The celebrated Central Shule Choir  lent their voices to a very uplifting and joyous service.

The following day festivities continued with over 200 attendees enjoying a full catered lunch (including ponchkes and latkes), music and a children’s Art & Craft Corner.  Residents, families and Club L’Chaim members enjoyed the warm, festive atmosphere of the day.

Volunteer Michael Cohen, accompanied by Karen Spiegel-Neumann, joined Rabbi Stern in leading the singing of Maoz Tsur and other Chanukah songs.

The Emmy Chanukah Raffle was drawn by President Joe Krampel, and raised over $1000, with money going towards the purchase of equipment for the Lifestyle Department.
