Eight Nights: A Chanukah Musical Celebration

Monday, December 1 - 7pm

"Eight Nights: A Chanukah Musical Celebrationwill include a 7-foot menorah lighting, an interpretation of Chanukah classics by Jazz Pianist Phillip Bar and a choral set by the popular a cappella group Shir Soul. Led by arranger, composer and vocalist David Ross, the all-male vocal ensemble has toured across the US and performed twice at the White House Menorah lighting ceremonies. The show will also allow viewers to learn more about the story of Chanukah and its modern-day lessons through short two-minute inspirational messages by Rabbi Benny Rapoport, co-director of the Jewish Discovery Center.

Chanukah celebrates the miraculous victory of a small band of Jewish fighters, known as the Maccabees, over the oppressive Syrian-Greeks in 139 BCE. Led by Antiochus IV Epiphanes, the Syrian-Greeks occupied the Holy Land and outlawed Jewish observance and Torah-study. After the miracles on the battlefield, when the Maccabees came to rededicate the Holy Temple, the discovered that the enemy defiled all of the pure olive oil prepared for the Menorah. Miraculously, the one tiny flask that they discovered burned for eight days, until new oil could be produced.

According to Rabbi Rapoport, the Chanukah festival carries with it a message of strength and hope, giving all people the power to overcome obstacles. "The Menorah represents the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and freedom over oppression,” he said. “Even one small candle can dispel a lot of darkness.”
