Chanukah Family Fun Fills Holy Law Synagogue

Share this article:


Holy Law in Manchester hosted a sparkling and fun filled Family Chanukah party. There was something for everyone, with crafts, face painting, food and even a bubbleologist! There were also specially designated ‘chill zones’ for different ages, with a soft play area for the younger kids and an arcade like set-up of table tennis and air hockey for the teens. Everyone came together at the end for an uplifting Menorah lighting and the ultimate unifier for all ages…doughnuts!

 Evaluation from Event Planner Jonny Dolties:

“It was a fantastic event for children, parents and grandparents to get together, meet new people and enjoy the Chanukah experience. It was great to see children from vastly different backgrounds enjoying themselves together and parents enjoying a chat and coffee together. It was a real communal event”.

Participant Feedback:

  • ‘My family made new connections within the Shul and the children had a great Chanukah experience’.
  • ‘It was a fantastic opportunity to support our shul and we all had a fun day out with our children in celebration of Chanukah’.
