KI Gala | Community Celebration 2020

KI Gala – December 17, 2020 @ 7:15 pm

Every year, KI volunteers host the KI Gala, raising thousands of dollars for our Annual Fund–and we always have a fabulous time!

The theme of this year’s Gala, “BE THE LIGHT” will honor Rabbi Hamilton’s 25th Anniversary at KI.  The Gala, originally scheduled for March 2020, has been re-imagined as a VIRTUAL GALA on 12/17/20, the last night of Hannukah.  Join us to share memories of Rabbi Hamilton’s tenure, hear from close friends, and celebrate his leadership and vision.  At the end of the program, please join us as we light the Hannukiyat together as a congregation, to bring greater light and hope into this darkest part of the year.

This year, our annual auction will be transformed into a raffle.  On each of the 7 nights of Hannukah, we will be drawing a winning raffle ticket; on the 8th night, we will be drawing the big prizes for Patriots, Red Sox, and WooSox packages live.  You can purchase tickets below or call the office at 617-277-9155.  Scroll down to see the Raffle prizes!!
