Target Groups: Multi-Generational Social Action Program, Seniors, Adults

This project is now in its third year at Congregation Shir Tikvah (Troy, MI). Congregants provide Chanukah gifts to less fortunate children, seniors and homeless adults in their community in a very personal way. Participants pick one or more candles from a large cardboard menorah, each listing the sex and age of one recipient. The congregant purchases a gift for the selected person and it is delivered along with the gifts bought by other participants.
