Menorah Lighting Ceremony

When: Thu., Dec. 17, 7:30 p.m. 2009

As a Jew not living in Israel, New York or Los Angeles, I've spent a good portion of my life educating those around me about the eternal mysteries of Chanukah. It's a damn shame I've spent so much time talking about Chanukah bushes. So I'm ready to tell it straight from now on. But rather than hear the truth from me, consider attending the lighting ceremony of Southern Colorado's largest menorah at 7:30 tonight at Chapel Hills Mall (1710 Briargate Blvd., chapelhillsmall.com). You'll already be there doing your last-minute shopping, so why not eat a latke (an oily potato pancake rumored to fuel feelings of nagging guilt), or some gelt (chocolate coins symbolizing stereotypes of Jewish wealth), or play with a dreidel (a spinning top aimed at hypnotizing our enemies) while diggin' live klezmer music? (Oops, there I go lyin' again ... ) — Matthew Schniper
