Modiin Presents an Extensive List of Hannukah Activities for Residents of All Ages

Hannukah, the holiday of the Maccabees, has a special meaning for the city of Modiin Maccabim Reut. Over the eight days of the holiday, a wide variety of events activities for children, youth, soldiers, adults, and the whole family will take place in the city.

The festivities will begin on December 2, 2010 with a candle-lighting at Einan Hall. This will be a fun event for the whole family, and will include different activity stations, Hannukah songs by the Modiin Flowers choir (conducted by Yankeleh Rotner), and a performance of "Lahav's Journey of Tricks" (admission fee applies). Meanwhile, the city's youth will light the candles for the peace and wellbeing of captured soldier Gilad Shalit.

On Friday, the city residents will be able to gather at the Interdisciplinary Center for a huge treasure hunt all across the Modiin Area, from Givat Sher to the Maccabean Grave to Titora Hill. Activities, performances, and quizzes will await the participants at every station! During the afternoon, right before Shabbat comes in, the municipality will salute the city's soldiers with an appreciation ceremony and a Dudu Tasa concert (entrance is free to all soldiers who are city residents with the presentation of an Enlistment Card).

This year's Hannukah weekend will focus on sports and athletics, with a road bike competition and single riders championship at the park on Emek Hahula and the 17th Water Park Race at the Reut Water Park -- all on Friday. During the evening, the youth just want to celebrate can attend the Youth Hannukasach at the Gag HaAdom.

The Chashmoniada, the event that's all about Hannukah, will take place on Saturday at Yitzhak Rabin High School. The event will include creation corners, Lego menorah-building, drumming, a silhouette corner, a "light and darkness" compound, a fire show, a gymboree for toddlers, and more (admission fee applies). The sports events will also continue on Saturday at Titora Hill, where there will be an open morning for bicycle riders. Andy Ram, one of the best tennis players in the world, will compete against Israel tennis champion Dudi Sela, who is currently ranked 74th in the world. This exciting tennis match will take place on the tennis courts of the Municipal Sports Center on Emek Zvulun (free entrance; preregistration required).

There will be a wide selection of activities to choose from during the week, starting with a creative art workshop at HaYovel School on Monday (entrance fee applies) and a barbecue and karaoke party at the Youth Club on Emek Dotan on Monday (free entrance). On Tuesday, the traditional Eretz HaMaccabim (Land of the Maccabees) convention will take place. Named after Professor Yair Pereg of blessed memory, this will be the 7th annual convention on the heritage of the Modiin area and will take place at the Interdisciplinary Center. Meanwhile, the Light and Glory Happening will take place at the same place (entrance fee applies), along with "Judah the Maccabee," the festive concert featuring the Upper Galilee Choir (directed by Ron Zarachi) at Einan Hall at the Azrieli Mall. The youth will also be kept busy that night, with sufaniyot making at the Youth Club and then salsa classes at the Gag HaAdom (free entrance).

The city's youth will continue to celebrate the holiday on Wednesday, this time with a special recording studio and karaoke party at the Youth Club on Emek Dotan and by graffiting the Gag HaAdom with Kir Ha'Ir. The Central Library will hold special Science and Legend workshops on Thursday, and the city will bring the holiday to a close by flying kites at Anabe Park between 10:00-14:30.
