A Community Hanukkah Celebration of Giving!

A family friendly, community event in celebration of the miracle of Hanukkah featuring hands-on ‘mitzvah’ projects that will be distributed to and benefit those in need in the Greater Twin Cities and beyond.


When we come together, amazing things happen: 160 sandwiches made to be distributed to the homeless; 150+ birthday party bags were assembled for shelters; 80+ Car-mitzvah bags were assembled; 73 + hats and mittens were donated; 60+ children’s books  donated to Shriners hospital; 40+ kindness rocks created to share kindness; 50 people donated blood; 100+ latkes, 50+ suffganiyot (jelly donuts) and tons of popcorn were shared. Too much family crafting and fun to count. Thank you all for a great day!
