“It’s a holiday that we are hoping to shine the light upon and open the door to people who may not have been familiar with it or think it is the Jewish Christmas — which it isn’t,” says chorale founder Carol Kozak Ward. The celebration centers around the lighting of menorahs, and this year the group has teamed up with Stories on Stage to add kid-friendly, interactive tales of Hanukkah.
The Festival of Lights begins at 5:30 p.m. at the McNichols Building, 144 West Colfax Avenue. Admission is free and all are welcome; light refreshments will be served. For more information, visit coloradohebrewchorale.org.
