Chanukkiah Contest: We want to see who can come up with the most creative, out-of-this-world, crazy, unique, beautiful, impressive, cute (any one of these adjectives will do) menorah.
They are due at Temple Shalom Emeth, 16 Lexington St., Burlington by Friday evening, Dec. 7th. They will be displayed in the sanctuary during the temple’s community Chanukah party on Sunday, Dec. 9th and posted on our Facebook page.
All money raised from people voting for your chanukiah will help the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Whatever you create will be a valuable family heirloom for years to come!
