Temple Beth Sholom Announces its Chanukah Celebration and Ark Dedication

This is an exciting and special month for Temple Beth Shalom. In March of this year Temple Beth Sholom relocated after 46 years from Sun City to Temecula. On November 29th, Temple Beth Sholom will be dedicating its new Ark which houses the sacred Torah scrolls (the original Five Books of Moses). This date will coincide with the celebration of Chanukah, and Temple Beth Sholom will also be relighting the Eternal Light that is above the Ark, similar to relighting of the Eternal Light ages ago, when the miracle of the oil burning for 8 days occurred. The celebration will begin at 6:00 p.m. with everyone bringing a dairy/vegetarian meal, followed by singing, lighting of individual Chanukah Menorahs and treats. The dedication will be held during Friday night Shabbat services to follow.

On November 21, 20 13, at 7:00 p.m., Student Rabbi, Sandy Rosenstein, will be teaching a class about Chanukah, and will explain why we celebrate this holiday, which is dedicated to freedom. In addition, Student Rabbi, Sandy Rosenstein will discuss the special foods and how the holiday is celebrated.

Temple Beth Sholom is located at 26790 Ynez Court, Temecula, CA. This is in the Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce Building. For more information about this event, visit Temple Beth Sholom’s website at, or call 951-679-0419.

Shabbat services are held every Friday night at 7:30 p.m. followed by an Oneg Shabbat and Saturday mornings at 10:00 a.m., followed by a Kiddush lunch. Jewish and Jewish inter-faith families are invited to come and visit.
