The Board of Rabbis of Southern California serves the strategic initiatives of The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles – Ensuring the Jewish Future, Caring for Jews in Need, Engaging the Community – by bringing together more than 320 rabbis representing the Conservative, Orthodox, Reconstructionist, Reform and Transdenominational streams of Jewish life.
The Board promotes and enriches Jewish learning and living through programming and leadership in the areas of Community Learning, Professional Growth, Interreligious Action, Social Justice, Healing & Spirituality, Media Relations and Israel Advocacy.
At noon on Tuesday, December 13, the Board of Rabbis of Southern California/Jewish Federation will bring the Festival of Lights to the City of Angels, hosting a menorah-lighting ceremony replete with food and music in City Hall. Celebrated musicians will join with a children’s choir as the City Hall Rotunda is transformed into a community Hanukkah party.
The Festival of Hanukkah begins at sundown December 20. The Board of Rabbis is holding this celebration prior to the holiday to accommodate the schedules of elected leaders, synagogue members, the community and students. Community members are invited to sing, eat some traditional foods and help light the candles of Hanukkah in a colorful and fun celebration of the holiday.
