Though small, the vibrant Jewish community in Salt Lake is well known. The annual Chanukah market at the JewCC er… JCC had plenty to offer this year including hand crafted menorahs, yarmulkes, items that don’t necessarily pertain to Judaism in any way (they had a live owl!), and lots and lots of food. I’m still trying to digest the large amount of oil I ingested due to the large quantity of delicious latkes I ate. Check out the market photos below and remember that the first night of Chanukah is tomorrow evening.
