Jewish community comes together for 3rd annual Chanukah Workshop

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Columbia's Jewish community put on aprons for the 3rd Annual Chanukah Workshop on Sunday.

Nearly 80 children showed up to the Two Notch Road Home Depot in Columbia to make Chanukah candle boxes and dradles. In previous years they made menorahs.

"The message of this holiday is to increase the light. And with so much darkness in this world, so much negativity especially now, I think any more light that we bring into this world just makes it better," Devorah Marrus, the organizer of the event said.

Organizers said turnout grows every year.
