Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The area's Jewish families came together Friday night for the yearly Shabbot Chanukah dinner.

People turned out at the Kinker Auditorium at the Jewish Community Center. They enjoyed songs, crafts, a book exchange and a kosher dinner.

Attendees were asked to bring their family menorah and a wrapped children's book.

Organizers say events like this are important for people in the Jewish faith.

"It's very important particularly when there are not a lot of you its nice to get together in a cultural way at a community center where you can celebrate together with other Jewish families," said Betsy Schwartz, with the Jewish Community Center.

Non-Jewish people were welcome as well.

The event celebrated the fourth day of the eight days of Chanukah.
