While millions of Americans spend time on the roads, rails and tarmacs this November, count yourself lucky to be in New York City—a place where celebrations never lack creativity, and this year Hanukkah and Thanksgiving fall on the same week. There’s the fabulous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, but don’t fuss if you didn’t wake up early enough to snag a spot on the street. Here are some other stand-out events and places to enjoy with family and friends this holiday time.

    Chanukah Festival and Mitzvah Day

    92nd Street Y


    Sun, Nov 24, 2013, 10:30 am

    Build your own menorah, decorate a dreidel, enjoy shows and take part in projects to benefit those in need. Have fun and experience the joy of tikkun olam (repairing the world) with your family. Please bring an unwrapped, unopened gift for the Chanukah gift drive. 92Y will provide more opportunities to volunteer around NYC throughout the day.
