Gift of Light

             Support the Temple!
                   Send Chanukah candles to your
                   friends and family at B’nai Israel!

Here’s How It Works:

  • Send candles and greetings to your friends and family at B’nai Israel! Don’t forget teachers & madrikhim!
  • Each box of candles will be beautifully-packaged & hand-delivered in plenty of time for the first night of Chanukah! Let’s light up B’nai Israel!
  • Your first Gift of Light is $18. Each additional Gift of Light is $8.   
  • Each recipient receives a single box of candles with a personalized greeting from each sender.
  • Worried you might forget someone? For a one-time fee of $36, you can send candles and greetings back to all senders who send candles and greetings to you! The best part: No one will know who ordered first!  To choose Reciprocity, you must make at least one selection (send at least 1 box of candles).
  • Order online! Check your email for your family’s unique link from  Prefer a paper order form? They are available in the Temple Office.
  • Order today! All orders must be submitted on or before Friday, December 1st!
