Kick off the Chanukah festivities at LA’s favorite gathering place

 Chanukah, the eight-day Jewish festival also commonly known as the ‘Festival of Lights,’ begins at sundown on Sunday, Dec. 2, and there is no better place to begin the celebrations than in the heart of the Fairfax District at The Original Farmers Market! The Annual Chanukah Celebration returns to the Farmers Market Plaza with fun activities for all ages.


  • The Jewish Federation’s PJ Library, a Jewish engagement and literacy program dedicated to providing free Jewish children’s books to families across the world, will be facilitating Chanukah story time readings and arts and crafts
  • PJ Library will also be inviting attendees to share their favorite Chanukah traditions by contributing to a giant interactive mural where they can create an image of themselves enjoying and celebrating the holiday
  • Kids are invited to participate in the building of a giant LEGO menorah, an annual tradition started by Rabbi Fischer of Miracle Mile Chabad in 2009.
  • Live musical performances by Jewish song leader and acoustic guitarist, Charlie Kramer, who, along with his band Chayut will bring the Jewish world of song to life in honor of the holiday
