Thursday 13th December – The real story of Chanukah (or one of them)

Our last Judaism 101 of the Autumn term will be on Thursday 13th December at 7pm at the Friargate meeting house with:  “The real story of Chanukah (or one of them)”.
We light eight candles, but there are probably more than eight versions of the Channukah story. Were the Maccabees heroic or were they the first terrorists?  Was it an invasion or a civil war?  Come and learn how a Jewish festival was created and then adapted to serve the needs of different periods of history. (Latkes optional but strongly encouraged.)
To view the programme for the whole Autumn term see here 

Judaism 101 is suitable for anyone from beginners to the most Jewishly knowledgeable!  Everyone will be challenged and learn something new so please do come along.
