From the announcement: “Join us for Shabbat and Hanukkah blessings, dinner with plenty of latkes, and a special Hanukkah concert and puppet show. The Sababas, a Seattle-based duo, will return to Kol HaNeshamah with their unique mix of Jewish and popular music, storytelling, puppetry and fun. All are welcome at no charge — children and adults alike! Please bring one extra bottle of oil to our donation box in the foyer at synagogue during the Hanukkah party. A cooking essential, the oil will sustain those in need, especially this time of year.” (More details on the KHN website.)
