Global Diversity Awareness – Hanukkah Celebration

December 6

Join the Penn State Health Office for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in a celebration of Hanukkah!

Hanukkah is a Jewish festival commemorating the recovery of Jerusalem and subsequent rededication of the Second Temple at the beginning of the Maccabean revolt against the Seleucid Empire in the 2nd century BCE. It is also known as the Festival of Lights. (Wikipedia).

This event is an opportunity to raise awareness about this festival and Jewish culture, as well as build an inclusive environment for our Jewish patients and employees.

How to Participate:

Stop by the cafeterias of your community hospital, or the common areas of your practice site, between Noon and 1:30 p.m. and between 5 and 6:30 p.m. (or while supplies last) to pick up treats and coloring pages and learn more about this celebration. Supplies are limited, so please be sure to stop down early, and don’t forget to “Check In” by scanning the QR code on the table.

Sign up for the monthly Diversity newsletter here to stay updated about this and other events hosted by the Penn State Health Office for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

We hope to see you there!
