Global Diamonds Jacksonville hosted an extravagant Chanukah celebration, an evening of “diamonds and dreidels,” on December 27th from 7 PM to 9 PM. Our company’s Israeli roots and relationship with Chabad Southside inspired the celebration, which is a non profit event. All proceeds from the evening benefit the building of the new Chabad center.
The event featured cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, a free raffle, and remarks from Dr. Lazar Finker, president of Chabad Southside. Guests mingled, shopped, and celebrated the culture and significance of Chanukah.
“Like the brilliant sparkle of a diamond, Chanukah is the Festival of Lights. An important message of this holiday is that we cannot fight darkness with a stick, we fight darkness with light. Each of our acts of goodness and kindness make this world a lighter and better place.”
-Rabbi Shmuli Novack
