Lighting of the Chanukah candles
Join us for the lighting of the Chanukah candles with music and sweet treats, every afternoon from December 24 to December 30. The eight-day Festival of Light celebrates the reconsecration of the Second Temple in Jerusalem in 164 BCE. Families and friends gather traditionally at Chanukah to celebrate together and to eat dishes fried in oil like doughnuts. We have also prepared a sweet "Chanukah Calendar": every day we will open one of the presents that contain Chanukah symbols, made by former Imperial and Royal Court Confectionary Demel. The presents will be raffled among our visitors on the last day of Chanukah.
