CCJ North London Branch held its annual Advent/Chanukah celebration on the afternoon of Sunday December 2nd 2018.
We were hosted by St. James the Great Clapton.
Rev. Rosemia Brown minister of our host church talked about Advent and lit the Advent candle. Ivor Millman, chair of CCJ North London Branch Committee talked about the historical background to Chanukah, the Chanukiah as a type of Jewish sacramental art and lit candles on his Chanukiah whilst saying the blessings. The church goers in the audience then sang Advent hymns and a choir from the local Jewish Community sang Ma’oz Tsur and other Chanukah songs in Hebrew, Yiddish and Ladino.
Finally we all enjoyed seasonal refreshments.
