It’s Raining Gelt!

Gelt, gelt, everywhere! The holiday treat will literally fall from the sky at the Chabad Jewish Center of Petaluma’s Chanukah Celebration. How? A drone will drop the little gold-foiled chocolate coins through the air and into the hands of eager children below. The celebration will also feature a mega nine-foot menorah, the world’s largest dreidel, a live DJ spinning Chanukah music, fire juggling, and latkes and jelly donuts. It all happens on December 18, 4:30–6 p.m., at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds in Petaluma. The event is free, but tickets are required; RSVP at
