This week, the Friendship Circle of Pittsburgh, along with the Jewish Residential Services of Pittsburgh and Merakey, participated in a virtual Hanukkah celebration. Friends shared something that brought them joy and light over the past year and watched a video about Hanukkah traditions. Gift bags were given out with a silver menorah and a candle-making activity. Everyone voted for their favorite lekach, a honey-sweetened cake made traditionally during Jewish holidays. Almost everyone voted for the delicious sweet lekach and the jelly lekach.
