Several dozen Tikvat Israel members, including many youngsters, observed the sixth night of Hanukkah with songs, latkes and candle lighting at a program Dec. 17 organized by the TI Women’s Network. Cantor Rochelle Helzner led the festive singing, Rabbi Ben Shull delivered a brief Hanukkah message replete with his own cartoon drawings and Eine Kline Tikva played several klezmer-infused tunes in the social hall.
