Celebrate this holiday season by attending the 2017 Chanukah Wonderland!

Each year, the Sara & Morris Tugman Bais Chabad Torah Center celebrates the eight days and nights of Chanukah with four magical days of fun known as Chanukah Wonderland. The event takes place at Orchard Mall in West Bloomfield Township, and runs during the Chanukah holiday.

The event is both celebratory and charitable in spirit. This year Chanukah will be lighting a “Coin-orah,” which will be composed of donated coins from event-goers. Proceeds will then be donated to local charities. Other event highlights include activities that are fun for young and old alike. Satisfy your sweet tooth by baking and decorating a fresh donut, or let your little ones express their Chanukah energy at the Dreidel Bounce House.

Here are some memorable moments from last year’s celebration:
