SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ – Temple Sholom (1925 Lake Avenue, Scotch Plains) will host its annual Chanukah-themed version of its popular “Lego Night” on Thursday, Dec. 15 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.
“We’re pleased that our annual Chanukah event has grown over the last few years,” said Mindy Carton, co-chair of Temple Sholom’s Lego Night. “Known as the Jewish Festival of Lights, the eight-day festival celebrates the triumph of light over darkness. Hosting our Lego Night during this holiday provides us the opportunity to open our doors and invite the community into our home to join in the festivities.”
Participants will be asked to put their imaginations to use by building some crazy creations while reveling in dreidel games and Chanukah music and songs, donuts, latkes and plenty of chocolate gelt. There will also be special drawings for Lego menorahs for participants. The event is free, but space is limited. RSVP at www.sholomnj.org or call (917) 710-8444.
