Even the rain and cold couldn’t keep the JCO away from kicking off the Hannukah festivities in December 2017. The celebrations began with the menorah lighting in Upper Saddle River on the first night of Hannukah. Community members, JCO members, Mayor Minichetti and the Bogert Student Chorus led by Mr. Chen were all in attendance as songs, doughnuts, and prayers ushered in the Holiday!
Immediately following the Menorah lighting, the JCO hosted their Annual Hanukkah Party at the Upper Saddle River Firehouse complete with bagels, latkes, (more) donuts, crafts, and games! A fun time was had by all who attended!
An extra special thanks to Stop & Shop and New Yorker Bagels for their generous donations!
