An American Jewish-Swedish Chanukah Celebration… In Orlando.
What: ChanuIKEA® – Brian Feldman (Best Performance Art – Orlando Weekly’s Best of Orlando 2008), invites you to join him for this Jewish-Swedish celebration where you may order anything off the IKEA® Orlando Restaurant menu, at your expense, and then dine together during the last night of Chanukah. There will be dreidels, there will be electric menorahs, there will be Swedish Fish®. If you happen to have a dreidel or an electric menorah, bring it! (The more the Chanukahier!) After dining, we will wander, like our ancestors did, through the IKEA® Lighting Department and join together in singing Peter Yarrow’s (Peter, Paul & Mary) Chanukah classic, “Light One Candle.” Next year in Älmhult!
When & Where: Sunday, December 28, 2008 at 6:00 p.m. (Eighth Night of Chanukah)
@ IKEA® Orlando Restaurant & Lighting Department
4092 Eastgate Dr. Orlando, FL 32839 (Conroy Road Exit, East of I-4)
How Much: Free to attend. You are invited to join Brian Feldman at his table and order anything off the IKEA® Orlando Restaurant menu, at your expense.
