The Mercato to Host Annual Naples Community Hanukkah Celebration

Collier County Commissioner Jim Coletta to welcome the community

The Naples community is invited to attend the Annual Community Hanukkah Celebration on Tuesday, December 7th at 5:45pm at The Strada at Mercato at US41 and Vanderbilt Beach Road in North Naples. Last year, the Mercato became the new location for this event, which had previously been held at Sugden Plaza in Downtown Naples for several years.

This year’s celebration will include:

Greetings from Collier County Commissioner Jim Coletta

Menorah Candle Lighting

The “Shalom Dancers”

Concert by the Naples Klezmer Revival Band

Hanukkah dreidels and chocolate coins

This annual event always draws a crowd of over 250 people, including the young and the young-at-heart. There will be lots of holiday spirit for the whole family. People are also encouraged to bring folding chairs.

The event is sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Collier County and our community synagogues and organizations, including Hadassah, Naples Jewish Social Club, and Jewish War Veterans Post 202.
