Hanukkah in Space
December 15, 2020 @ 6:20 pm - 7:30 pm
For All Ages!
We’ll begin together at 6:20 pm as we light our menorahs for this 6th night of Hanukkah and then blast off into space.
We will show the documentary film: ‘Space Torah’ followed by Q&A with Executive producer, Rachel Raz.
In 1996, NASA astronaut Dr. Jeff Hoffman brought a small Torah scroll on board Space Shuttle Columbia. On Shabbat, while orbiting Earth, he read from the book of Genesis, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” This is a story about inspiration, communities, and a man’s journey.
