Enjoy free latkes (potato pancakes), doughnuts and hot chocolate as Leytonstone rocks to the live music of Menasche and the Shulhoppers in a street party to mark the 8th night of the Jewish festival of Chanukah (Festival of Lights). This will take place just opposite Leytonstone Bus Station at the junction of Fairlop Road and Fillebrook Rd and Grove Green Rd. All are welcome.
This street party is organised by Leytonstone and Wanstead Synagogue (LAWS). It will begin with the lighting of a huge candelabra, The Leytonstone Menorah, with 9 stems, for the Jewish festival of Chanukah (21-29 December this year). Starting with 2 lights, an additional light is lit every night until all nine are switched on, when there will be a splendid spectacle of them all shining forth. After 18.00, the party will continue with music and refreshments at LAWS at 2 Fillebrook Rd E11 4AT.
