The annual Senior Adult Hanukkah luncheon on December 5 brought together more than 130 adults 55+ for a special holiday program in the JCC Community Hall to celebrate the Festival of Lights.

The service was led by Rabbi Gail Swedroe of Congregation Agudas Achim. The festive luncheon was hosted by Shalom Austin Women’s Philanthropy, who ensured that all aspects of the event were executed perfectly. The program was sponsored by Brookdale Senior Living, which ensured there was no cost to attendees. ■
