The congregation and friends of North Suburban Synagogue Beth El celebrated Hanukkah early on Dec. 18 with a Festival of Lights Party.

The fifth-annual party, organized by Kory Goldenberg, Alicia Gejman and Michelle Friedland, had a family performer and holiday projects for children to recall the story of Hanukkah. Although Hanukkah is celebrated from Dec. 22-30 this year, the organizers wanted to hold an early celebration so they congregation could all celebrate together.
