New Mexicans will celebrate Hanukkah the ‘FUNky’ way at Congregation Nahalat Shalom’s popular annual event ‘The Funky Khanikeh Freylekh’ (which translates to “The Funky Hanukkah Joyous Event”)!
Dance to the exciting music of the 20-piece Community Klezmer band and join the fun and easy dance lines led by Rikud dance troupe. Enjoy special activities and presentations by and for children, and a performance by puppeteer Marc Wunder.
Beautiful crafts and unique items will be sold by local artists and craftspeople -- including the nationally recognized New Mexico artists Diana Bryer and Diane Palley. There will also be a silent auction, a used book sale, and a raffle.
“Latkes” - the famous potato pancakes of the Hanukkah tradition will be sold along with other delicious foods and drinks.
Please bring canned food items to donate to Roadrunner Foodbank - and warm blankets and clothing for Project Share’s warm clothing drive.
