Greenpoint Shul Hanukkah Events

Hanukkah starts at sunset on Wednesday, so for our Jewish friends we’re posting a couple of the programs that the Greenpoint Shul is running. The Greenpoint Shul is an Orthodox synagogue that serves the entire Jewish community in Greenpoint. All are free, donations are gladly accepted.

Friday, December 3 (7:00 pm): Wine Tasting and Pairing, in conjunction with Roebling Liquors Inc. Donations gladly accepted.

Sunday, December 5 (3:00 pm): Chanukah Cooking Class – Learn to make everything Deep Fried! Including Latkas and Donuts.

Sunday, December 5 (4:30 pm): Annual Chanukah Party – featuring arts ‘n crafts for kids, competitive driedel, clothing drive, and a look at energy issues in Israel, etc. In conjunction with the Green Zionist Alliance.

Not sure if you’re aware – in addition to their regular programs, the Congregation Ahavas Israel is also raising funds in order to save the shul building from its next door neighbor – the Reform Temple (which stopped services years ago) has been condemned and could potentially collapse on the current shul, though I gather the greater danger is that the City will demolish the entire Temple and leave the remaining Congregation with the bill. The Congregation Ahavas Israel plans to keep the facade (in accordance with Landmarks guidance) and restore the basement, and build a green roof over the basement – a complement to the garden currently behind the Temple.

There’s a video on YouTube that explains the situation with the Reform Temple and the shul:

Thanks to Brian of and reader Samara for the heads up.
