Fun will be had for all ages at Congregation Israel of Kings Bay’s annual Chanukah Family Fun Party Thursday night, December 13, 7:30 p.m. at 3903 Nostrand Avenue (corner of Voorhies Avenue).

The yearly Chanukah fest, which is free to all, features a menorah lighting, chocolate Chanukah gelt, delicious jelly-filled donuts (“sufganyot”), prizes, refreshments, dreidels and more.

The commemoration of the eight-day Festival of Lights recalls the miracle of the oil and ancient rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem during the revolt of the Maccabees.

While free, a donation is suggested. The event, sponsored by Kosher Palace Supermarket, is a joint program of the CIKB-Y.I. of Kings Bay and Release Time at P.S. 52.

For more info, call the synagogue at (718) 934-5176.
