Chanukah on Ice
After a hard-fought victory for religious freedom, the Maccabees returned to their temple with enough oil to light the holy lamp for one day, but it lasted eight. Now, Rabbi Benny Zippel celebrates the occasion every year with Chanukah on Ice. Utah's Jewish community and their guests are invited to skate several hours for free on the Gallivan Center's rink to traditional music, followed by latkes, sufganiyah (jelly donuts) and Utah's largest indoor menorah lighting. 239 S.
