Join Sephardic Heritage International-DC (SHIN DC) and partners for an evening of music and festivities to raise awareness of the Syrian and other refugee crises. SHIN DC’s annual Hanukkah program is inspired by a Syrian Jewish narrative that Sephardic refugees began lighting an extra flame each night of Hanukkah to commemorate the security & tolerance they found in Aleppo, following expulsion from Spain in 1492.

  • Syrian American musician Asher Shasho Levy to be featured! His band Aram Soba (Aramaic for Aleppo in Syrian Jewish parlance) has performed Syrian Jewish music at the Grand, Los Angeles’ premiere performance venue.
  • Kosher Syrian Hanukkah treats.
  • Syrian and other Hanukkah foods catered by food writer and chef Susan Barocas.
  • Hanukkah lighting with a special guest.
  • Receive information about ways each of us can help refugees in the U.S. and around the world.

EARLY SPECIALS EXPIRE Wed. 12/14 at 4PM, including $8 off per person.

Partners from HIAS and other refugee-supporting organizations will join us. Sponsorships available.
