Chabad of Santa Barbara Hosting ‘Chanukah in the Mall’ on Tuesday

The festival at La Cumbre Plaza will feature live glass blower Tim Lindemann

Chabad of Santa Barbara is gearing up for its annual “Chanukah in the Mall” festival featuring live glass blower Tim Lindemann, who will make children’s glass dreidel tops as attendees watch.

The Chanukah festival will take place at 5 p.m. this Tuesday, Dec. 20, at La Cumbre Plaza near Macys.

Participants will also help decorate a mosaic on the Giant Menorah and participate in a Paint Jam collaborative art activity. To celebrate the festival of lights there will be the kindling of a Menorah, a taste of Chanukah delicacies, live music and an olive press demo.

While music plays Chanukah favorites, Latkas, donuts and other Chanukah treats will be served.

“It’s all about creating an event that will be exciting for the whole family,” said Rabbi Zalmy Kudan, youth director of Chabad. “The message of Chanukah; the triumph of light over darkness, is a universal one and one that we would like to share with the entire community.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
