Chanukah is a time of joy and celebration. Family and friends join together to recall the victory of the Maccabees and the miracle of the oil.
Celebrate with us! Candle lighting, singing, eating (latkes, applesauce, salad and donuts) and entertainment will all be included. Sophia Isadora Academy of Circus Arts will provide jugglers, stilt walkers, a contortionist, tumblers and comedy to make this a memorable gathering. Be sure to bring a chanukiah (Chanukah menorah) and 7 candles to share our candle lighting.
The Sophia Isadora Academy of Circus Arts (SIACA) was founded by Cheryl Lindley and Rogelio Lopez and grew out of experiences associated with the Fern Street Circus. Cheryl Lindley, President of the SIACA, explored commedia dell’arte in the mid-1980s and has appeared throughout the world performing circus acts. Learn more now.
Reservations are now closed. Happy Chanukah!
