Best Chanukah Party in the World

Free Chanukah Party This Sunday

Where can you enjoy games, Dreydl, coloring, candle lighting, a Magic Show, plus a hot dog and latke lunch? At Ezra Habonim, the Niles Township Jewish Congregration, that's where! And, if that isn't exciting enough already...It's all for FREE, thanks to the EHNTJC Men's Club.

It's this Sunday, December 13. Please come at 10 am for games, coloring and singing, enjoy Entertainment Magic by Randy at 10:45, followed by Lunch at 11:30.

Gan/Day Care Open House, too!

Have any friends looking for childcare for their pre-schoolers? Bring them along. There will be a Gan/Day Care Open House during the party, to let everyone know about the most affordable and fabulous day care/early childhood program in the area.

Start Early with Shabbat/Chanukah Dinner on Friday

Kick off Shabbat and the 8 days of Chanukah on Friday 12/11 with the Shabbat/Chanukah Dinner at 6:30 pm. The always lively and engaging Jeff and Janis will lead services with Rabbi Ginsburg. Dinner is $16 for adults and $6 for children. Advance reservations required. Call 847-675-4141.

Dinner at Ha'Shalom, 2010 Programs

Thanks to the Shoss-Bonaventuras, the Zavell's and the Gonzalez's who met at Ha'Shalom last month for the first "Adults Only" (you know what I mean, right?) Parents Club Outing. We enjoyed a delicious dinner out and a chance to socialize and share our connections to Judaism, from being inter-faith families (the first two families), to going through the conversion program and setting up a new Jewish home (the latter family). Thanks, too, to Pauline Gumin, Dr. Ross' classroom aid, who provided "Group Babysitting." We look forward to more fun outings in 2010!
