Advent-Hanukah Celebration -Lincoln Council of Christians & Jews - Tickets Available from Unicorn Tree Books

Faiths unite for festival
JEWS and Christians are coming together next month to celebrate two important festivals from each faith.
Following the success of a similar event in 2008, the Lincoln and District branch of the Council of Christians and Jews is organising a celebration of the Christian season of Advent and the Jewish festival of Hanukkah.

The event will be held on Wednesday, December 8, at 6.30pm at the Chapter House of Lincoln Cathedral.
The festivals are not connected, but share common features.
The North Hykeham and District Choral Society and children from the Ellison Boulters Primary School in Scothern are taking part. Chairman of Lincoln CCJ, Steve Griffiths said: "Not only will it encourage spiritual dialogue between Jews and Christians, which is the central purpose of CCJ, but it will further strengthen the close ties between the cathedral and the local Jewish community. "We are enormously encouraged by the commitment of civic and church leaders."

Entrance to the celebration is ticket only, but tickets are free and are available now from Jews' Court, Steep Hill, and Unicorn Tree Books, 35-40 Central Market, Sincil Street, Lincoln.

This year I am hoping to be able to keep 2 tickets for me, as I really wanted to go last year but the last person in wanted 3 so I kindly sacrificed my own 2 for them! I'm really hoping not to have to do it this year as everyone kept telling me after how beautiful the celebration was - So do stop in and get your tickets so you don't miss something truly wonderful
