2021 Hanukkah Music Festival
First Performance

Happy Hanukkah from all of us at Bernard Zell!

This Wednesday and Thursday morning, over 300 parents joined us in-person and more than 485 households—including parents, grandparents, faculty and alumni—tuned in online to celebrate the joy of Hanukkah as one big Bernard Zell community. Students from every grade contributed to this special performance filled with warmth and meaningful school traditions.

Happy Hanukkah from all of us at Bernard Zell! 

On Wednesday, December 1, and Thursday, December 2 from 9:00 - 10:30 a.m., the Bernard Zell community will gather together for our annual Leona Molotsky Hanukkah Music Festival! 

In order to keep community members safe and appropriately spaced, students will perform two identical shows on December 1 and December 2 from 9:00 - 10:30 a.m. each day, allowing two family members per household to attend a performance of their choice. A livestream (link below) of both performances will be made available for additional family members, friends, alumni and community members.


Two family members per household to attend a performance of their choice. 

Arrive early to check-in.

Seating is randomly assigned. Seat numbers and further instructions will be emailed to you ahead of the performance. 

If you purchased Hanukkah Cookie Kits, they will be given to you at the performance you attend. For any other questions regarding cookie kits, contact Rachel Charlip.

All attendees must be fully vaccinated or have received a negative COVID test within 72 hours of the performance and should remain masked at all times while on campus.
