IGNITE! Tikkun Leil Chanukah: A New Festival of Jewish Culture & Learning
Hosted at Holy Blossom Temple (1950 Bathurst Street, Toronto)

Ignite a new tradition for Chanukah. IGNITE! opens with a community-wide Havdalah for all ages, then breaks into a choose-your-own-adventure of arts-based workshops, performances, and Jewish study sessions. The centrepiece of the program will include a hybrid live/virtual variety concert curated by the Ashkenaz Festival, in which artists from around the corner and around the world will bring us fresh musical performances inspired by the themes of the season. Kosher food for purchase.
