Charki Dunn, Director of Music

We hope you are looking forward to a festive Hanukkah with family and friends! We're excited to continue our wonderful Bernard Zell tradition, the Leona Molotsky Hanukkah Music Festival on Friday, December 20 at 9:00 a.m. Below you will find important information about ticketing for the festival and other pertinent information. 

On Thursday, December 12 we will be launching an online ticket system for the event through Eventbrite. Tickets will be released according to the division of your youngest child.

• Early Childhood (N-SK): 11:00 a.m.

• Lower School (Grades 1-4): 12:00 p.m.

• Middle School (Grades 5-8):  1:00 p.m.
Each Bernard Zell family who plans to be in attendance will have the opportunity to select and reserve up to two assigned seats in the Sanctuary. This number is based on anticipated attendance. If additional tickets become available after these initial releases, an opportunity to reserve more seats will be available on Tuesday, December 17 at 10:00 a.m.

To reserve your seats:

1. Visit the Hanukkah Music Festival page on Eventbrite

2. Enter your family's unique code: (this will be found in the email sent to all parents on Wednesday, December 11)

Reminder: Tickets will not be available via the Eventbrite link until the designated times.

Please note that reservations are required for seating in the Sanctuary and parents and guests must check in at the registration table to receive their tickets for entry to the Sanctuary. We hope you will visit the Bernard Zell Hanukkah Book Fair in Malkov as well. The Sanctuary doors will open to guests at 8:30 a.m., 30 minutes prior to the performance.

Attendees for the Festival are asked to enter the school through the main entrance from the parking lot on Broadway. All guests who have a Bernard Zell ID are asked to visibly wear their ID to assist with safety and security.

Please Note: All students should wear their Bernard Zell navy blue polo, with nice dark blue or black jeans, slacks or jeggings. If girls wear the navy dress, they should also wear navy blue or black leggings or tights.
