Community Hanukkah Party at The Shames JCC

For the first time, synagogues and havurot in Hastings, Dobbs Ferry, Tarrytown and Greenburgh, who are part of the Rivertowns Jewish Consortium,  have joined with the Shames JCC to offer an all-community Hanukkah Party on the last day of Hanukkah, December 9th from 3:00-5:00.


Headlining the event is Alicia Svigals, nationally known violinist who was formerly of the Klezmatics. She will play the violin and, accompanied by an accordionist, will sing classic Klezmer and Hanukkah music in both Yiddish and English.


More music throughout the event will be performed by bands from the Rivertowns Jewish consortium.  There will be do-it-yourself crafts, face-painting, hair-braiding, games, bouncy house and enough food and drink –including latkes, donuts and pizza—so that no one will leave hungry. At 4:45 PM, there will be a special community menorah lighting.

A time and place for everyone to connect, the BIG Community Hanukkah Party is for the whole family; not just for little kids. There will be a special teen activity led by J Teen in the Shames Youth Lounge.


Special ticket pricing at $5.00 per person is available online at .


Tickets at the door will be $10 per person. The Shames JCC is located at 371 S. Broadway, Tarrytown.
