Ringing in the eighth and final night of Hanukkah, this evening’s Festival of Lights is a party tailor-made for everybody. A BYO-menorah lighting celebration is just one part of the Colorado Hebrew Chorale’s annual interfaith gathering of song, dance and generous servings of latkes. Joined by the Rocky Mountain Ringers, a Denver handbell ensemble, the chorale will lead the community in holiday-oriented numbers, along with traditional Israeli folk-dancing instruction.
After several sell-out years at Four Mile Historic Park, the Festival of Lights moves to the McNichols Building, at 144 West Colfax Avenue, for the first time for an even bigger affair. “We want to reach as wide an audience as we can — and we’re excited about being able to fill this place with people and hand out many more latkes,” says Colorado Hebrew Chorale founder Carol Kozak Ward.
