It’s Chanukah, y’all! Celebrate the first night of Chanukah at the JCC! We’ll light the menorah, nosh on Southern fried chicken and latkes, and enjoy a live concert by The LeeVees. Their Hanukkah Rocks CD is by far the best holiday/Chanukah record of the last 20 years, according to Bob Boilen of NPR’s All Things Considered. Formed in 2005 by Adam Gardner (Guster) and Dave Schneider (Zambonis), their intent was to write modern rockin’ classic Jewish songs about Chanukah, fun, food, family and more. The band has been featured in many television appearances and, most importantly, has played numerous JCCs across America.
