A Light Through The Ages: A Chanukah Celebration

Top Pick December 18, 2016 Boston Free

Central Reform Temple and the famed Zamir Chorale once again join together for the eighth annual Boston presentation of “A Light Through The Ages,” a celebration of Chanukah in story, song and light. This event, which has become a beloved holiday season tradition for hundreds of people of all faiths, will be held on Sunday, December 18, at 4:00 pm at the Temple’s home at Emmanuel Church, 15 Newbury Street, in Boston.

The Temple will once again honor community leaders representing organizations and issues that emulate the core spiritual and social values of the congregation. Each of these special guests will participate in the lighting of the Menorah, symbolically spreading the light of their various gifts to the civic, cultural and social life of our city.

The original text of “A Light Through the Ages,” written by Rabbi Howard Berman, chronicles the celebration of Chanukah in different times and places over the past 2000 years – celebrating the struggle for peace, justice and religious freedom through times of darkness and moments of light and triumph.

The voices of the world renowned Zamir Chorale, under the leadership of artistic director Joshua Jacobson, will accompany these timeless stories with traditional and contemporary holiday music.

According to Rabbi Berman, “Chanukah, with its universal message of the light of spiritual freedom and the embrace of diversity, truly can and should be celebrated as an interfaith experience with our friends and neighbors in the community . . . we offer what has become a family tradition as a special gift to our extended family throughout the entire Boston area.”

All are welcome to this free event. No reservations or tickets are required.
