On Wednesday the 24th of December, the 101.9 ChaiFM Team will be visiting the children’s wards at Rahima Moosa and Charlotte Maxeke hospitals in Johannesburg, Gauteng.
Around the world, the Jewish Community is celebrating the festival of Chanukah. Also known as the Miracle of Lights or the Festival of Lights, Chanukah is a Jewish Festival that dates back to Temple times when, after the Temple had been destroyed, there was only enough oil left to provide light for one day but the oil lasted 8 days.
Customs on Chanukah include eating foods fried in oil such as latkes and doughnuts. It is also common practice to give gifts.
It is for this reason the station has taken on the initiative to visit the hospitals in order to spread some light and give gifts to those less fortunate this December.
The station will be handing out toys and traditional foods associated with the festival of Chanukah known as suvganiot (doughnuts).
The station invites their listeners to join them as they visit the hospitals. If you would like to join the team on the day or donate some toys, gifts or doughnuts, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office on 061 082 3459.
