The Jewish celebration of lights, better known as Chanukah, will take place this year from

16-25 December.

For 10 years, the Eurochanukah events have been bringing Jewish culture and the European institutions closer together. The European Jewish Community Centre (EJCC), which has been promoting Jewish culture within the European project of unity in diversity for 13 years, is hosting two separate events to celebrate the ten-year anniversary.

-On 16th Dec, on the Schuman roundabout at the heart of the European quarter, at 18h00 with guest of honour Didier Reynders, Belgian Minister of Foreign and European Affairs, the celebrations will start with a Menorah lighting open to the public followed by a concert at the EJCC premises.

-On 17th Dec, in the premises of the European Commission, the Berlaymont, at 17h30, it will continue with the highlight of the Eurochanukah events, a Menorah lighting hosted by High Representative of the European Union and Vice President of the EC, Ms Federica Mogherini.

This event is open to EU members and external guests. A relevant exhibition called “Inspiring Unity” will be displayed.
