On the first night of Hanukkah this December 16, the centuries’-old secret behind the real story of Hanukkah will be disclosed and told by Bet Knesset Bamidbar’s (BKB) Judaic scholar and new Rabbi, Steven Rosenberg. The story we all learned in school, “just ain’t so.” In the spirit of shining a new light on this, “Festival of Light,” the Honorable Oscar Goodman, and his daughter Cara, will share the spotlight with their very special performance on the celebration of Hanukkah. “Oscar Goodman, endeared and known for his wit and great humor, will share an amazing Chanukah message which will warm the heart and bring a smile to the face," said BKB's Rabbi Rosenberg. "It is the Festival of Lights in a season filled with hope, where all things are possible....a time to be proud of our heritage and grateful for our many blessings," the Rabbi went on to say.


BKB’s volunteer producers have planned even more fun in the production with an emphasis on audience participation in singing, lighting the first candle, and enjoying the sweet tradition of savoring a Suvganyot treat. There are also more performance surprises, but, “shhhh,” it will be an afternoon of secrets revealed.


“Rabbi Rosenberg and our beloved former mayor have such talent, knowledge and engaging personalities, and I am so excited that they can join us. To have daughter, Cara participate, only adds to the warmth and family-feeling of the joyous holiday of Hanukkah,” said BKB President, René Colen. “That BKB can extend an invitation to children and adults alike in our Las Vegas Community to attend and enjoy this special afternoon, has been especially important to our member-congregation, because giving to the community is part of the heart of BKB,” he said.
