חנוכה Hanukkah Party Sunday afternoon, December 10th. 

Hanukkah חנוכה means Dedication, and is the celebration of the Macabbee victory over Greek-Syrian genocide and assimilation, in ancient times, against all odds.  This year the thought of Israel fighting against overwhelming odds is greatly on our minds!

The celebration will begin at 1:30 pm with shopping, and schmoozing.  There will be craft activities for children, then a Children's Choir, followed by a serious presentation about the current Hamas attack and Hanukkah similarity.  closing with 4 minute YouTube short on the war.  Parental discretion on the short. 

Finish the evening with a shared meal of victory by faith, of latkes & finger foods. 

Again, this year: Homemade Donut/Fritter Contest!  Make your prize-winning donut/fritter recipe at home and bring them ready to serve. Must be made fresh from scratch. Entries will be judged on appearance, taste, texture, aroma, and non-greasy palate. Prize will be awarded for the winning entry. More details and entry forms are here.

The Vision of Or HaOlam:

Working to bring Jewish people, and those grafted in, to their covenantal identity in Messiah.  Implies: 1.) Salvation through the Atonement of the Messiah; personal faith in the atoning death and resurrection of Yeshua; it's all about the King  2.) Covenantal identity of Jewish people, not replacement  3.) Restoration to Torah lifestyle  4.) Restoration/survival of the nation of Israel. (Covenantal identity, so Jewish believers don't assimilate.  Romans 11:15 "For if their casting Yeshua aside means reconciliation for the world, what will their accepting him mean?  It will be life from the dead!)
