Jewish Cultural Society of Yukon
1. Chanukah starts on Thursday December 7th this year and we are here to help you get ready.
2. If you are planning to light Chanukah candles this year, please let Rick know if you need candles and he will order them this Thursday and they should arrive late next week.
3. We have our AGM and our annual Chanukah party and candle lighting event this year on Friday December 8th. The event starts at 5pm on Friday and as we did last year it will be here in the Clubhouse in my condo corporation at 58 Falcon Drive in Whitehorse.
4. It is time for us to pay our membership fees. It is really easy to do that. All you have to do is go to the link below and follow the simple instructions you will find as you scroll down the page jcsy.org/membership As well, like last year, and for the Passover Seder, I will have my world-famous Chicken Soup with matzah balls for everyone to enjoy. Claire made her chicken soup with matzah balls for the event yesterday and it was so popular everybody came back for seconds and so it was all gone by half way through the event.
The mandate of the JCSY is to develop an active and supportive Jewish Community. We are also working to document and share the impact of the Jewish Presence during and after the Klondike Gold Rush of 1898.
It took months to get from San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver, Victoria and Winnipeg to the fields of gold - and it was a dangerous journey. There were close to 200 Jews in Dawson City during the Gold Rush (1897 - 1915).
The Jewish Community of Whitehorse respectfully acknowledges that we live within
the traditional territory of Kwanlin Dün First Nation and the Ta’an Kwäch’än Council.
