The festival of lights saw a joyous celebration at the Bay Ridge Jewish Center (BRJC) on Sunday, December 18 as members of all ages turned out to mark the holiday of Chanukah which begins on the evening of Saturday, December 24.

The well-attended celebration, which had about 100 people from the age of six weeks to 94 years of age show up at the 81st Street center, was truly “wonderful,” according to BRJC President Ruth Masyr.

“The party was wonderful and it was extremely well-attended,” Masyr said. “There were many young families with children, we had arts and crafts for children including a doughnut decorating station and in addition to that we had plenty of latkes, dreidel games and lots of other Chanukah games.”

According to Masyr, about 30 menorahs were lit at the same time by all the children and families in attendance, and, the center had a special surprise in store for its Rabbi Dina Rosenberg.

“We had a surprise for Rabbi Rosenberg; we celebrated her birthday and she was very surprised,” said Masyr. “It really was great. After they lit the candles, they sang Chanukah songs and it was just terrific.”

According to Masyr, the party was organized entirely by volunteer parents with BRJC’s Hebrew school.
