On Friday, December 6, you are invited to celebrate Hanukkah at the Alliance JCC. From 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., you will enjoy music by the Providence Civic Orchestra of Senior Citizens, entertainment generously sponsored by the Shalom Memorial Chapel and by the Flu Clinic, VNA of RI.
You might bump into Angel Tavares, the mayor of Providence, who has attended in the past and is on the invite list. The Brown RISD Hillel will serve matzo ball soup, potato latkes with apple sauce, challah, chicken cutlets and candied carrots. And don’t forget about the best part – Hanukkah cookies and jelly donuts!
All of the Kosher Senior Café’s volunteers are invited as guests; they will receive a special gift. All participants will get a dreidel, a bag of chocolate coins and a glass Hanukkah coin made by Neal Drobnis, sand-cast and hand-blown glass artist and the Kosher Café Manager for the Jewish Family Service. This is Drobnis’ fourth coin and fourth year running the event.
Reservations are requested by November 27. Those planning to attend should contact Drobnis at 861-8800, ext. 107. The suggested donation is $3. Neal promises a good time and praises the amazing musicians who are at least 90 years old.
