United with Israel, in conjunction with the Thank Israeli Soldiers organization, will be holding its first annual IDF Chanukah party on Sunday.
During the party, American and Israeli students and families will join together with Israeli soldiers and commanders at a base on the outskirts of Jerusalem.
The event will feature music, dancing, traditional Chanukah food and the traditional nightly candle lighting.
The candles in this particular party will be lit using the “Kassam Rocket Menorah,” a chanukiyah that was created from the remains of Qassam rockets that exploded in Israel. An Israeli artist has transformed these missiles of terror into something of unique beauty and light.
As well, a special ceremony will be held in honor of the soldiers in which ‘Warm Winter’ care packages from United with Israel supporters will be given to them. Personal letters from admirers all around the world will be presented as an expression of gratitude and unity.
