LBC host an Open Week-end of activities, discussion and learning. Join us as we welcome the wider community and celebrate Chanukah together!
Everyone is invited to join us at our Chanukah BBQ, which will feature craft and Chanukah activities for all ages, a Kosher-style BBQ, lighting of the Chanukah Menorah, live music, and Israeli dancing and, of course, latkes & sufganiyot! Fun for all the family! Please bring a non-dairy food item to share.
Rabbi Jonathan introduces the few relevant texts and shows it is by no means as clear cut a matter as you may have thought. Kiddush Hashem (‘sanctification of God’s name’ – dying to preserve God’s values) is not only lauded but mandated in certain situations, and the death penalty is liberally mandated.
Discussion will run until 12pm, with coffee break.
