FEATURING: YEHUDAH & MENDY PIAMENTA IN CONCERT
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 13 2:00 PM

 

As the Jacksonville Jewish Community anticipates the arrival of the holiday of Chanukah; Chabad’s attention is directed towards the 27th  “Annual Celebration of Light” event to be held on Sunday, December 13, 2:00 PM at the Chabad Mandarin/Headquarters. 

 This year’s event will feature: Yehudah & Mendy Piament in Concert. Born to a musical family, Yehuda andCHANUKAH piamenta.jpg Mendy are the sons of renowned flutist Avi Piamenta. Raised in Israel, Yehuda made his first stage appearance at the tender age of six and it was only a matter of time before he started acquiring a musical style of his own. Mendy’s talent, dedication and passion for music has brought new life into the world of Jewish music. Together, Yehuda and Mendy have propelled traditional Jewish music into the 21st century and given it the exposure it deserves. They engage and delight audiences of all ages.  You can expect to clap, sway and dance!

As part of this year’s upgrade, there will be new and exciting inflatables for the children, some of the latest on the market. Additionally, Captain Character will be there with his famous balloon twisting and face painting.

Chanukah, the Jewish Festival celebrating the liberation and rededication of the ancient Temple in Jerusalem begins at nightfall, Thursday, December 10th  and is celebrated for 8 days. The Festival is marked by the lighting of an eight-pronged Candelabrum called a Menorah, or Chanukiah, commemorating the symbol of victory of a small Jewish army against a vastly oppressive Assyrian Greek regime during the 2nd century BCE.

The Annual Celebration of Light is open to the public and free of charge. Participants will be treated to free delicious hot potato latkes and prizes.
