Murray Tilles of Light of Messiah Ministries will walk us through Jesus’s celebration of Hanukkah in the Gospel of John and discuss modern Jewish celebrations of the holiday. Murray is a Messianic Jewish believer in Jesus and a family friend of the Feldmans. He was instrumental in Pastor Adam’s father believing in and trusting in Jesus as Messiah.

There will be a 30 minute Q&A following the teaching. There will also be an opportunity for you to light your own menorah as Murray recites the Hanukkah blessings in Hebrew and English (see details below).

This is a great way to prepare for the Advent and Christmas season!


Sunday, December 6, 6:00pm – 7:15pm on Zoom

Who: This event is open to all Metanoia Partners, regular attenders, families, and friends! This is a kid friendly event, and the whole family is encouraged to participate.

RSVP to receive Zoom call-in information.


Light your own menorah! You are encouraged to make your own DIY menorah and light the candles with Murray as he prays the Hanukkah blessings in Hebrew and English. For those with children, building your own menorah together can be a special family experience and help your children be engaged in the Jesus In Hanukkah event.

Click for examples of DIY menorahs, drill 9 holes in a 2×4 and then decorate it, or create your own variation! As long as you build your menorah to hold 9 candles (8 close together, 1 set apart), you’re good to go! Hanukkah candles are not necessary for the evening, but they are relatively inexpensive and readily available at stores like Target and on
