Hanukkah and Havdalah Outdoors (Atlanta)

December 4 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm EST


Join Rabbi Malka Packer-Monroe from 18Doors and Rabbi Ariel Wolpe from Ma’alot for a delightful IN PERSON celebration of the 7th night of Hanukkah and Havdalah at Ormond-Grant Park. Bring your beloveds, a hanukkiah (menorah), 8 candles (7 nights plus the shamash, helper candle), foil (to put under your hanukkiah), a lighter and a picnic dinner. We’ll provide doughnuts and fun.

Rabbi Ariel Wolpe will lead us in the blessings for Havdalah (the ritual to end Shabbat) followed by Hanukkah blessings. It will be magical to light all of our candles together in community. All are welcome to stay after for a picnic dinner.

This event is for Jews and their loved ones. Kids of all ages are welcome!

We take everyone’s health, safety, and comfort seriously. All adult event participants must be fully vaccinated. Please see the registration page for more details. 


  This event is cosponsored by Ma’alot.
