This year, rGEN celebrated Chanukah in two very different but equally festive ways. In mind-December, friends of all ages gathered at River Garden for the first ever ‘rGEN Family Chanukah Extravaganza’, where there was fun to be had for kids and the kids at heart. Events included, PJ Library story time, crafts with DuBow Preschool Treehouse, sufganiyot decorating, singing and dancing. A big thanks goes out to host River Garden Senior Services and the many volunteers who made this multi-generational event a huge success.

 

                Nearly a week later, the community’s Jewish young professionals gathered at HOBNOB in Riverside to light candles in celebration of the very first night of the Festival of Lights. Another big thank you goes out to friends and co-sponsors, SoShul Network and The Temple 20s and 30s for making ‘rGENukkah Eve’ possible and such a big success
