Join educator and longtime East Bay Jewish community member and artist Daniel Barash for an event that invigorates Jewish holiday traditions through the ancient art of shadow puppetry. As shadows are cast upon a lit screen, Jewish stories and folktales from around the world will be brought to life.
Enjoy a Chanukkah-themed teaching from JCC East Bay Shamash Resident Sara Kupor, then spend some time Israeli folk dancing around the lit flames. Snack on sufganiyot (yummy jelly-filled and powdered doughnut bites), spin the dreidel, visit with local camps and get to DIY-ing one of their unique holiday crafts, and take a jump in the bounce house – all under some challah-day music.
