Please note: as you will no doubt be aware COVID-19 is leading to many events being cancelled or postponed. Please check with the organisers of any event listed here to confirm it is going ahead as planned.

Chabad Islington warmly invites you to the 7th Annual Islington Menorah Lighting, a free celebration for the whole community to mark Chanukah, the Jewish festival of lights, taking place in the very heart of Islington.

Witness the ceremony of lighting the nine-branch Menorah, hear the excellent London Klezmer Quartet, sing traditional songs, and indulge in free savoury and sweet treats: doughnuts, hot cocoa, and a variety of latkes, traditional potato pancakes of various flavours provided by Adafina/1070 Kitchen.

The evening will feature plenty of free entertainment for all ages, from kids’ activities tent, storytelling, to spectacular fire performances. This year’s edition is made particularly special by the fire walk challenge, charity fundraiser where participants will be able to prove the strength of their character by walking barefoot on burning embers, while raising funds for Chabad Islington.

This event is free and open to all.
