Official re-dedication of the Mandelbaum Family Lounge

On December 14, the CJL celebrated the renovations of our building with a re-dedication event on the 3rd night of Hanukkah. Our community came together to observe Hanukkah and to recognize the donors whose generous contributions made the renovations possible. We also officially celebrated the naming of the Mandelbaum Family Lounge with a plaque unveiling, and lit the menorah in the beautiful newly-dedicated room. A festive holiday dinner closed the evening, highlighted by a performance from Koleinu, Princeton's Jewish a capella group.
