Hanukkah in New York

Looking for ways to celebrate Hanukkah in New York? (Or Chanukah. Both are fine.) We’ve got your list, with everything from family days to a Hanukkah Christmas party that will go into the wee hours. Hanukkah Family Day-The Jewish Museum Looking for a fun family activity to celebrate Hanukkah? Check out the Jewish Museum’s Family Day. Participants will make a Hanukkah lamp with found objects, visit the galleries, and watch a performance. Families will also participate in other projects, including a group one, which takes place throughout the day. December 15. [caption id="attachment_3450" align="alignnone" width="413"] Photo Courtesy of the Jewish Museum[/caption] Large Menorah Lighting While the world’s largest menorah is in Manhattan, a close runner-up can be found in Brooklyn. It’s been a Hanukkah fixture since 1985, and during Chanukah, thousands of people come out to see it being lit. Revelers will be greeted with live music and latkes, and gifts are given to every child. Note: The rabbi who lights the menorah is assisted by a 60-foot boom lift, something worth seeing in and of itself. Chanukah on Ice You might have celebrated Chanukah at Grandma’s or a neighbor’s...but have you ever celebrated it on the ice? Well, you can do just that at Lasker Rink, in the north corner of Central Park. A DJ will play music throughout the evening, and special guest appearances are promised. Guests will also be treated to delicacies like latkes and donuts. And—ta da!—there will also be a giant hand-carved ice menorah. (It will be lit during the festivities, which take place December 22. Now that’s Hanukkah in New York!) And if you’re hankering for more ice skating, check out our tips here! Menorahs and Manhattans Want to imbibe some Manhattans while crafting a menorah? Of course you do. Head to the 92nd Street Y and you can do both. (The program is part of the Bronfman Center for Jewish life; check out their other programs as well.) December 14. Xmas-Hanukkah @ Slate If you’re looking for more of a party atmosphere, there's the Xmas-Hanukkah @ Slate event. Billed as an event for young professionals, it’s got a DJ, dance floors, and music ranging from hip hop to Israeli and Top 40. Dec. 24 (although technically it goes til 4 AM the next day.)
