Beth El hosts Dec. 17 Hanukkah mystery and dinner

Latkes and . . . larceny? This is not your usual Hanukkah dinner.

On Sunday, Dec. 17, beginning at 4:30 p.m., Beth El – The Heights Synagogue invites you to eat, shmooze and solve the “Mystery of the Missing Menorah,” as it hosts a unique Hanukkah Mystery and Dinner.

Throughout the dinner—a four-course kosher vegetarian meal, including latkes and other traditional Hanukkah foods—guests will work in groups to solve the mystery. Those gathered will light Hanukkah menorahs as a group, between courses.

According to event chair, Scott Wachter, “There are many Hanukkah parties in Cleveland. There are also mystery and dinner events. We believe that ours is the first Jewish mystery and dinner in the city. Participants will have a unique opportunity to celebrate the holiday while using their problem-solving skills to figure out who stole a special Hanukkah menorah.”

The entire community is invited. The cost is $20 for adults, and $5 for children 6–12 (children under 6 attend free of charge) if you register by Dec. 7. The cost for walk-ins is $30. For more information, and to register, e-mail or call 216-320-9667.

Beth El – The Heights Synagogue is an independent minyan that is participatory, traditional and egalitarian in worship and in learning. The synagogue is located at 3246 Desota Ave., in Cleveland Heights.
