BBYO: Shabbat, Chanukah, & Friends
Latkes, brisket, and Shabbat candles brought dozens of Jewish teens from San Antonio’s BBYO chapters together December 8 for a mega-event, combining Chanukah, Shabbat, and a gift exchange. The night marked BBYO’S Global Shabbat event: Jewish teens all over the planet celebrated together. Although Chanukah was a few days away, the event served as a potluck for the holiday and everyone exchanged fun gifts.
“It was amazing to come together as a whole community with my Jewish brothers and sisters to celebrate the holiday that is typically overshadowed by Christmas, but is at least eight times more fun!” said Neely Kasanoff, who helped plan the event. “The Chanukah party was a fantastic bonding experience and way to kick off the holiday season!”
BBYO Festivities continue throughout the year. Up next - a Super Bowl kick-off party. To join in on the fun, contact Devin Billstein, BBYO City Director, at 210-302-6869.
