Shain Park Menorah Lighting
LIGHTING UP SHAIN PARK ON CHANUKAH
The annual lighting of the Menorah in Shain Park, Birmingham, will take place on Wednesday night, December 12, at 6:30 p.m., with musical accompaniment by the acapella ensemble, "Pella."
Following the Shain Park lighting, there will be an indoor After-Glow Chanukah party at about 7 p.m. across the street in the ballroom at the Birmingham Community House featuring refreshments along with holiday games, activities, and art projects.
The After-Glow will also introduce a new music band, "Shlomo and the Chutzpanyaks," described as "Jewish Gospel from the Heart of Detroit."
Chanukah is an eight-day Jewish holiday celebrating the "miracle of light," the spiritual principle that the light of goodness and kindness will always overcome the darkness of evil and hate, which symbolized by the lighting of the menorah on each night of the holiday.
The Menorah Lighting and After-Glow are being hosted by the Birmingham-Bloomfield Chai Center, a synagogue serving the Birmingham-Bloomfield Hills area. For more information, contact Rabbi Boruch Cohen of the Chai Center at 248-203-6721 or email@example.com; or go to www.bbchai.org.
More About Shain Park
Located in heart of downtown Birmingham, Shain Park is a gathering place for Birmingham's residents. Boxed between Martin, Merrill, Henrietta and Bates streets, the park is a popular spot to relax, enjoy an open-air lunch or watch a concert. And with City Hall, the Birmingham Community House and Baldwin Public Library next door, there's no way to miss it.
With an elegant sculpture as its centerpiece, the park is flanked by two focus points. An open-air concert stage sits on the south end, while a fountain adorns the north side. In between there is plenty of open green space for a game of tag or tossing a ball.
