The Chanukah and Shab­bat ser­vice will be­gin at 7:30 p.m., fea­tur­ing the tem­ple’s clergy: can­to­rial soloists Lori Shapiro, Lawrence Der­mer and Michelle Aus­lan­der Co­hen; and Rabbi Dan Levin, Rabbi Jessica Spi­tal­nic Brock­man and Rabbi GregWeis­man. The event will also fea­ture Tem­ple Beth El’s adult cho­rale Shir Ru­ach and the Shir Joy youth choir for grades 3-6, ac­com­pa­nied by pro­fes­sional mu­si­cians.

“The cel­e­bra­tion of Chanukah brings light into the dark­est time of the year,” said Levin. “It is our hope that the en­tire com­mu­nity will share in our con­gre­ga­tion’s cel­e­bra­tion of the Fes­ti­val of Lights. We de­lib­er­ately chose the Mizner Park Am­phithe­ater so that ev­ery­one in our com­mu­nity will feel wel­come to cel­e­brate this fes­tive time with us.”

”Chanukah Un­der the Stars” was in­tro­duced in 2010, and in 2012, the event fea­tured nearly 4,000 guests in attendance. This year, the Jewish Fed­er­a­tion of South Palm Beach County is sup­port­ing the cel­e­bra­tion through its Jewish out­reach grant, and San­ford and Mar­ion Gold­stein will be hon­ored for their long-time support of the tem­ple. The co-chair­women for this event are Tracey Gross­man and Gina Shugar.
