Rain Doesn't Dampen Our Chanukah Spirit

B'nai Moshe

On Sunday, December 5 the Conservative Community met to celebrate Chanukah as one.  We were prepared for the possibility of cold temperatures and/or snow.  This is Michigan, after all.  What we didn't expect was a driving rain, however we didn't let that dampen our spirits. 

One of the highlights of the celebration was to be the lighting of B'nai Moshe's giant Chanukiah and a parade to Jewish Senior Life Apartments where we would sing and dance with our friends there.  However the rain made that an impossible task.

Every car that showed up received a large pizza from Jerusalem Pizza and donuts from Dunkin' donuts.  There were hot and cold beverages for everyone and warming stations for those who needed to warm up a little.

We got a wonderful visit from Michigan's Governor Gretchen Whitmer who spoke and stayed to take pictures in the rain with so many people.  

This was our first foray into such an event and even with the rain, those who came absolutely loved it!  We look forward to doing this again next year.  Hopefully with no rain!
