Temple Sholom Annual Chanukah Lego Night

Temple Sholom of Scotch Plains today announced that it will host its annual Chanukah Lego Night on Thursday, Dec. 12 from 6 pm to 7:30 p.m. at Temple Sholom, 1925 Lake Avenue, Scotch Plains, NJ.  Back by popular demand, the event is free and open to the public.

Participants are welcome to build as many Lego creations as their hearts desire, while reveling in dreidel games, enjoying Chanukah music, and indulging in donuts, latkes (potato pancakes) and plenty of chocolate gelt.

Also known as the Festival of Lights, the eight-day festival celebrates the triumph of light over darkness.
