Skirball Hanukkah Celebration

Online Program

Premiering on YouTube | Sunday, December 13, 3:00 pm (PT)

About the Program

Come one and all to celebrate the Festival of Lights online! Perfect for fans of our much-beloved annual Hanukkah Festival, this one-of-a-kind streaming event features everything you’ve come to expect from a Skirball holiday extravaganza.

Enjoy a heartwarming community candle lighting and a lively sing-along to get you feeling festive. Groove to the klezmer beat of LA’s own Mostly Kosher, jam to the psychedelic funk of Israeli superstar Gili Yalo, and gather ’round for a timely puppetry performance that retells the age-old Hanukkah story. If you tune in on Sunday, when the program premieres, you can participate in a virtual game for prizes.
