Shabbat Chanukah at the Zoo -- we've got it all

We've got hot latkes; we've got a great parsha.  We've got rowdy Chanukah stories, and a rousing p'sukei.  We've got a forecast for sunny weather, and a harmonious Hallel.  Come join us for a Shabbat Chanukah celebration!! (NOTE: Hot latkes and other holiday treats will be served *before* the Torah reading, so no worries for our blood-sugar-sensitive friends)

Thanks to our leyning volunteers (still one or two left, check out the spreadsheet).

Last-minute davenning leaders or davenning treats are encouraged.  And we need some storytellers (Story-readers)!  Over the centuries, our tradition has accumulated a dazzling array of stories about the origins of Chanukah, which are rarely told today.  We'll share a few together -- if you want to give one of them over, just write back for your own sneak preview, so you can read your story in advance, before reading for the group.

Torah schlepping and Zoo Minyan veggies would also be appreciated.  And if you think you're coming this shabbos, let us know, so we can be sure we've got a minyan -- and that we've got plenty of latkes!
