SoCal Jewish families are finding ways to keep the Chanukah traditions alive


LOS ANGELES — Jewish Community Taking Chanukah Celebrations Virtual

For Saul Blinkoff, Chanukah is about family.

“We anticipate Chanukah throughout the year,” the Los Angeles father of four said. “The children tally as the days progressed.”

And keeping in mind that large family social occasions have been precluded as COVID-19 cases flood, Blinkoff said his family is as yet wanting to get along with friends and family.

“Express gratitude toward God for Zoom,” Blinkoff said. “We Zoom pretty much consistently with them, and we will discover Zoom occasions to light our menorahs while our family is lighting their menorahs as well, and we’ll sing with them.”

Jewish families cross country are discovering approaches to keep Chanukah conventions alive in what has in any case been an exceptionally untraditional year.

“We’re actually doing it,” Jason Leivenberg, of The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles, said. “We’re actually getting it going.”

Leivenberg said the association has assembled a virtual celebration this year, Infinite Light.

“Because we can’t assemble and light the candles doesn’t imply that you can’t have 1,000,000 Zoom cameras up or FaceTimes up and light them all together,” he said.

For Leivenberg, the delight and harmony of the occasion is required during this troublesome year.

“The antiquated history of Chanukah is about flexibility,” he said.

Concerning the Blinkoffs, they’re demonstrating that flexibility by changing their common intends to sing at a nearby nursing home.

“This year, sadly, we won’t have the option to go to a nursing home,” he said. “However, we will explore how we can discover Zoom openings, so our children can sing again for individuals that may feel segregated.”
