As a wise man named Adam Sandler once famously sang: “Hanukkah is the festival of lights, instead of one day of presents, we have eight crazy nights!”
He’s right. One of the best things about Hanukkah is how many days we have to truly enjoy it. It leaves a lot of room for creativity (and for eating delicious oily foods). But while it’s decidedly awesome to have a holiday that encourages opening a new present every night for more than a whole week, Hanukkah also offers the perfect opportunity to give back.
That’s where Repair the World’s Eight Nights of Service comes in! Starting Tuesday, December 20, Repair the World will suggest an awesome service project, donation opportunity or other way to spread tikkun olam (repairing the world) and get involved during the holiday – one for each night. Hanukkah is about miracles, after all, so what better way to celebrate than with service? (And doughnuts, of course.)
Keep your eyes peeled for each service gift idea – and this Hanukkah, let your spirit for volunteering last for eight days and nights!
