Children from Chabad House performed as part the “Chanukah Live,” the city’s largest Hanukkah celebration, held Nov. 24 in downtown Asheville.
“Chanukah Live”, Asheville’s largest Hanukkah celebration, was held in a packed events room at the Renaissance Hotel on Sunday night.
The event was co-sponsored by Chabad House and the Jewish Leadership Collaborative of Asheville and featured kids’ activities, food and musical performances. Performers took to the stage before a 8-foot Menorah constructed of toys, books, and games collected by a Chabad House toy drive to be donated to Mission Children’s Hospital and other children in need.
Mayor-elect Esther Manheimer was also on-hand to celebrate and address the crowd.
