Getting Ready to light the Hanukkah candles at the festival of lights in James Island Park sponsored by PJ Library, Jewish community center without walls, KKBE, and synagogue Emanuel!
Fun times at the Hanukkah on the Square and we promoted that we had our own holiday diversity Lightfest in Summerville! Wouldn’t it be great if we could have a low country/tri County lightfest next year? That would show a display of unity that everyone keeps talking about. Let’s make history and walk the talk and if you’re interested in helping to explore this idea, please message me or call 8438198509.
Happy Hanukkah to all. So proud to be a part of a group that participated in night of giving at the Publix in Knightsville. Synagogue Emanuel organized it and thank you to Summerville resident Lydia, her daughter Emma and the others who attended and donated a carful of non-perishables to Charleston Jewish family services food pantry!

The Summerville CommUNITY Artists Heritage Series presents:
Conversations With Cancer
Cancer touches the lives of everyone in the world. The Summerville/North Area Jewish Community and The Community Resource Center bring together all who have been touched by this disease for an afternoon of togetherness. Samantha Brock Perlmutter will sing songs of inspiration from her new CD “Be A Song”, the Carolina Seniors Line Dancers will dance for cancer, and others from our community will sing songs, show visual art and tell stories about their fights, triumphs and losses in an afternoon meant to unite and educate our community.
The event is free to attend, light refreshments will be served. Donations can be made at the event to ACS’s Charleston Hope Lodge (cancer family housing) and Hope’s House (Summerville Women’s Shelter).
In collaboration with the Community Resource Center of Summerville.
