Hanukkah in the Park (Atlanta)

December 18 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm EST


Join 18Doors and other Jewish organizations in Atlanta for a delightful in-person celebration on the first night of Hanukkah in the Park! Bring your loved ones, a hanukkiah (menorah), 2 candles (one candle for the first night plus the shamash, or helper, candle), foil (to put under your hanukkiah), a lighter and a picnic dinner, which we’ll all enjoy together after the candle lighting. We’ll provide sufganiyot (Jewish doughnuts) and fun activities for the whole family.

It will be magical to light all of our candles together in community. This event is for Jews and their loved ones. Kids and adults of all ages are welcome!


This event is cosponsored by Repair the World, PJ Library, Jewish Fertility Foundation, Honeymoon Israel, Ma’alot, In the City Camps, Sojourn, and Jewish Kids Groups.
