The Jewish Community Center in Sherman will hold a Hanukkah party Dec. 14 at 6:30 p.m.

The event will include a festival of lights, musical entertainment by Yale Strom accordion player Peter Stans, a four-course dinner prepared by JCC member, children's games and dancing.

The festival of lights will feature a four-foot high wooden menorah -- designed and made by David Marks, a founding memnber of the JCC, and Lys Reeman -- that will later be sent to Israel for outdoor display.

A donation of at least $15 per adult is suggested. Children under 13 will be admitted for free.

Proceeds raised will benefit local victims of Hurricane Sandy and other local charities.

Prepaid reservations are required by calling the 9 Route 39 South center at 860-355-8050 or email
