Chanukah Celebration

The Historic Pearl
303 Pearl Parkway
06:00 pm - 09:00 pm



Pearl is excited to announce a new holiday tradition in partnership with Young & Jewish San Antonio (YJSA) for an inaugural Chanukah Menorah lighting celebration on Wednesday, December 9. The festivities at Pearl will bring the entire San Antonio community together from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and give guests the opportunity to experience traditional kosher food from Green Vegetarian Cuisine along with music from Tera Ferna and Brent Michael Woods throughout the evening. The Menorah at Pearl will be lit each successive evening of Chanukah.

The celebration will begin at 6 p.m. with Chanukah greetings from Rabbi Chaim Block, Executive Director at Chabad Center for Jewish Life & Learning, and Mayor Ivy Taylor, followed by a historic nine-foot Menorah lighting to celebrate the fourth night of the holiday for an evening celebrating Chanukah in true Pearl fashion.

Indie-folk-rock band Tera Ferna will take the stage following the lighting to play several traditional Chanukah songs along with a 45-minute set of their own music.

Throughout the evening, Green Vegetarian Cuisine will offer falafel burritos for $8, along with traditional Chanukah Jelly Donuts for $4. Local favorite singer-songwriter Brent Michael Wood will close out the special evening with a two-hour set of music on the plaza for all to enjoy.
