Governor Nathan and First Lady Sandra Deal invite celebrants throughout the Atlanta area to join them in celebration of Chanukah at the Governor’s Mansion Sunday, December 9th.
For the 9th consecutive year, Atlanta’s Temple Emanu-El has been asked to represent Georgia’s Jewish citizens at this annual event. It’s open to 100 participants. You can register at this link on the temple’s Web site: https://templeemanuelatlanta.shulcloud.com/event/music-and-candle-lighting.html.
Following a brief 12 Noon celebration program and refreshments at Temple Emanu-El, buses will provide roundtrips from the temple to Governor’s Mansion.
Attendees will enjoy holiday treats, tour the Mansion’s holiday decorations and be entertained by Zimria, the Temple Emanu-El Youth Choir, led by Cantor Lauren Adesnik. Cantor Adesnik is a renowned musician; prior to becoming a Cantor, she performed extensively throughout the Greater Los Angeles and Southern California regions. Since coming to Atlanta, Cantor Adesnik often performs Jewish classical and contemporary music with the Atlanta Community Symphony Orchestra. She and Zimria will make their debut with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra this month.
Temple Emanu-El celebrants and Mrs. Deal will participate in lighting the last candle of Chanukah, 2018.
Temple Emanu-El is located at 1580 Spalding Drive, Sandy Springs.
About Temple Emanu-El
Temple Emanu-El was founded in 1978 by a daring group of Jewish families living on the north side of Atlanta.
