We always have lots of great events for Hanukkah in and around Beth Sholom Temple & Fredericksburg. These include the annual lighting of the menorah in downtown Fredericksburg on the first night of Hanukkah (left) and on a different evening, a family friendly Hanukkah dinner (complete with homemade latkes!) at BST where every family brings their own menorah to light (below).
