Discover Your Light

Co-created by a NuRoots Community Member

On Hanukkah, we celebrate the miracle of a bit of oil lasting the Jews eight nights. On December 9, we’ll share stories of small acts that light up our lives. 

Join us for community storytelling, wine (enough to last all night), and, finally, a walk-through light installation that shows us the power of one small candle. 

Allow your senses to experience the strength one light can have, and leave with an appreciation for the smaller things in life.

L’Dough V’Dough: Light & Miracles

3G@LAMOTH (Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust)

Braid and bake challah alongside local Holocaust survivors and share personal narratives from one generation to another. You’ll have an opportunity to create menorahs to be donated to a local community center.

Evoking the Hebrew phrase, “L’Dor V’Dor,” or “from generation to generation,” L’Dough V’Dough is a unique opportunity to engage with local survivors in an intimate setting in meaningful conversations about the Holocaust, Jewish culture and heritage, and social action. You’ll leave inspired by stories of remarkable resilience and the strength of community.
