St. John’s Celebrates Hanukkah

Posted on December 14, 2017

St. John’s Episcopal Hospital celebrated the start of Hanukkah with a menorah lighting ceremony. Staff members, as well as members of the community were invited to attend and participate.

The hospital will have a small menorah lighting ceremony for each day of Hanukkah. The public is invited and encouraged to attend all of these ceremonies, and special guests are chosen each day to light the menorah. At this event, Rabbi Avraham Klein and students from a local Hebrew academy lit the menorah alongside members of the St. John’s Episcopal Hospital Pastoral Care Department, including Chaplain Rabbi Leslie Schotz, Chaplain Rabbi Imanuel Davydov, and Dr. Nancy Schaffer. Kosher Donuts were also given as treats to the students.

“Hanukkah is the perfect time of year to remember the importance of family, friends, and community,” said CEO Gerard Walsh. “We are excited to celebrate with our friends in the Rockaways.”
