On Sunday, Dec 9., the Canton Chai Center will host its annual Chanukah celebration, Hanukkah Wonderland at Canton High School at 12:30 p.m.
Children and adults from Sharon, Canton and neighboring towns are invited to experience Chanukah through creative crafts, hot potato latkes, Israeli sufganiyot, jelly donuts, a moon bounce for the kids, face painting, Chanukah music, Family entertainment, by Awesome Robb Comedy and a Magic show at 1:30 p.m.
Chanukah, also called the Festival of Lights, recalls the victory from more than 2,100 years ago of a militarily weak, but spiritually strong, Jewish people over the mighty forces of a ruthless enemy that had overrun the Holy Land and threatened to engulf the land and its people in darkness.
The event will culminate with the lighting of the Menorah along with the traditional blessings and songs. Admission for the event is free.
