12/1: PR COmmunity Menorah lighting
This “festival of lights”, celebrated by Jewish people around the world, represents the struggle from darkness into light and the power of community and teamwork. In this time of shorter days and uncertainty, it is a mitzvah (good deed) to come together in high spirits to celebrate goodness and light.
To participate in this event you do not need a physical menorah (virtual menorah here: [http://www.virtualmenorah.com/vm/](http://www.virtualmenorah.com/vm/...)) or even be Jewish- Hanukkah is for everyone! We will provide a digital copy of blessings and songs-all you need is a Zoom link and the willingness to participate!
Topic: Pleasant Ridge Community Menorah Lighting
Time: Dec 1, 2021 06:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

12/5 & 12/17: Photos for santa
The Pleasant Ridge return of a creative opportunity (and many times, less stressful) for your children to visit with Santa...at a distance! Being at a distance shouldn't mean making it awkward or unnatural. PRCC is offering a way for your family to visit with Santa at his Workshop, where it would be natural that kids would be talking to him behind his workbench (instead of being on his lap).
Santa's Traveling Workshop will be set up in the parking lot at Moler-Hollywood Beauty Academy on Saturday December 5th from 11 am -1 pm. Please sign up via the link below so we can arrange accordingly.
Your family will receive (3) 5x7 photo prints and a digital image for you to make additional copies for $25 (plus sales tax).
Important: Use the sign-up link here to reserve your spot!
