Hanukkah Events at Beth Am


Hanukkah (Hebrew: חֲנֻכָּה, usually spelled חנוכה pronounced [χanuˈka] in Modern Hebrew, also romanized as Chanukah or Chanuka), and known as the Festival of Lights. Hanukkah is an eight-day Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple (the Second Temple) in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt of the 2nd century BCE. Hanukkah is observed for eight (8) nights and days, starting on the 25th day of Kislev, according to the Hebrew calendar, which may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar.

This year Hanukkah is November 28th - December 6th



8 Days of Giving Program

We had such a wonderful response to our "8 Days of Giving" last year, that we are bringing it back! Let's spread a little joy to help others.  We have chosen programs in the San Diego community that do an enormous amount of good. Our goal is to have Beth Am support those in need.  Help us give “8 days of gifts” to these programs in San Diego County.  You can choose 1 program, 3 programs or all 8 programs. It is up to you. Starting Monday, November 29th through to Monday, December 6th (last day of Hanukkah), you can drop off the donations for the programs that you choose. Drop them all at once or one each day for the “8 Days of Giving.” Please click here to read about the programs and the type of donations they need.
