October 23 @ 9:15 am - 10:30 am
An event every week that begins at 9:15 am on Sunday, repeating until December 18, 2022
This fall, OZ will be serving bagels, coffee and tea, with fun/social group experiences for adults!
Beginning September 11, ten weekly ChaiLights gatherings will give you a chance to learn a little, taste a little, share a little, maybe even schvitz (sweat!) a little while connecting with others.
Each gathering will start off with food and open conversation, followed by a different interesting experince that will engage and inspire, let us create and improve the world. This project’s vibe is fun, social and low-pressure, with activities lead by community volunteers. This is a great fit for jews, jewish-adjacent and those just curious.
Thanks to a program sponsor, individuals or couples who sign up by September 1 and attend at least 3 dates will receive a Hanukkah Kit (worth over $50) for free before the holiday.
Our first gathering will be September 11, at 10:00 am, and will include a discussion about OZ’s recently restored 110 year old “Lost Mural” and other historical items at OZ followed by a bagel brunch.
Our Planned Activity List (Subject to Change):
‣ Sign making and march in the Vermont Pride Parade
‣ Cemetery clean-up outing
‣ Walking to tour Burlington’s historic jewish quarter from back in the 1880s to early 1900s
‣ Learn Mahjong
‣ Kitchen experience
‣ “One Jewish Thing” discussion

‣ And, we will end the program with a Hanukkah activity in December
Plus, we have space in the schedule for content and activites based on participant feedback.
