Chanukah deLIGHT! 2012
Dec. 9-16

Fire Spinning by Dancing Djinn 
Join the JCM for some Chanukah fun for the whole family! Watch fire spinning performances by Dancing Djinn; participate in our "Soil to Oil" interactive olive pressing workshops; customize your own donut just the way you like it; and enjoy a deep-fried cookie demonstration and tasting.

Hang around for the Grand Menorah Lighting and guess how many dreidels are in the Giant Driedel Chocolate Gelt Menorah for a chance to win a Sled and Snow Play Set!
