Igniting The Spirit

The first day of Chanukah was a festive
affair at the Jewish Community Center
in West Bloomfield.

Hundreds of Detroiters jammed the Jewish Community Center
on Sunday to get into the festive spirit of Chanukah — the Festival
of Lights. Games, prizes, songs and refreshments added to the
Chanukah atmosphere.
At left, Marilyn Wolfe led the Chanukah song fest, one of the
few times during the busy afternoon that the large crowd remained
seated. Below, youngsters and parents lined up for a game of toss the
(paper plate) latke. Below right, Carrie Lynch, Sheryl Muonio, Risa
Davis, Sandie Landau and Judy Farsch assembled Chanukah gift
packages for the youngsters. The plastic-bagged goodies included
chocolate gelt, plastic dreidels and soufganiyot (donuts), all symbolic
of the holiday.
Above, Dr. Michael Rosen proudly holds his son Daniel, after the
youngster's face was painted for the holiday. Another youngster has
a menorah added to his cheeks, while Shira Traison gives her opinion
on the subject.
An additional highlight of the afternoon's activities was the
reciting of the story of Chanukah by the youngsters of Club 5 of the
Jewish Parents Institute.
