PJ Library® in South Palm Beach County Prepares to “Light Up the Fourth Night of Chanukah”


at Boca Center, December 21

Boca Raton, FL  In celebration of the fourth night of Chanukah, PJ Library®in South Palm Beach County invites friends and the entire Jewish community to a family-friendly celebration — Light Up the Fourth Night of Chanukah” — in Boca Raton. Crafts and story time, latkes, gelt, candle lighting, a special Chanukah concert, and much more will make for a fun and memorable evening.

From 5 – 7 p.m. on Wednesday, December 21, 2022, participants can celebrate the season at The Shops at Boca Center, 5150 Town Center Circle, Boca Raton, FL 33486. (Please note that this location is off Military Trail– not at the Town Center Mall.) Together, community rabbis will be lighting a giant Chanukah Menorah and welcoming families.

“This is the highlight of our holiday season, when families participate in the activities that make this time of year so special,” said Matt Levin, President and CEO of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County. “There’s so much energy, joy and fun at this event that is definitely one of my favorite programs.”

PJ Library Director Elana Ostroff promises something for everyone.

“Jacob Spike Kraus always delights with his musical talents. His music is eclectic, drawing on themes from pop, rock, folk, and R&B genres — not one to be ‘put in a box’ stylistically,” Ostroff said.

In addition to the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County, PJ Our Way, and PJ Library in South Palm Beach County, the Deborah and Larry D. Silver Center for Jewish Engagement, event sponsors include The Shops at Boca Center, Above and Beyond Advertising, and Lox & Bagel.

Crafts and story time begin at 5 p.m., followed by the candle lighting and concert at 6 p.m. Ostroff said everyone is thrilled to have the opportunity to gather and celebrate Chanukah in person.

“Each of our local synagogues and agencies will have a table at the showcase for families to visit and learn about our local Jewish Community,” she said.
