For Sandy Krupinsky, the Palm Sunday celebration at Prince of Peace Episcopal Church in Woodland Hills brought together her deep faith in Jesus and her love of family. "My parents went to church here and I grew up in this church," said Krupinsky, of Agoura Hills. "Palm Sunday is part of the tradition of church and family that I want to give to my children."

Not to toot his own horn, but 6-year-old Sam Hounan figures he could grind out shofars for the Jewish New Year all day long if he had to. "I bet I can get this as smooth as glass. It's pretty hard, but I'm good at it," Sam said as he furiously rubbed sandpaper over the rough-edged sheep's horn he was clutching. Sam was one of 200 children swarming around worktables at a Westwood temple, where animal horns were being fashioned into ceremonial trumpets for use this week at Rosh Hashana services.

Hundreds of visitors to one of Orange County's largest and oldest synagogues were in a festive mood Sunday, and why not? The holiday calling on Jews to atone for their sins, Yom Kippur, had just passed. And members of Temple Beth Sholom in Santa Ana were celebrating a more lighthearted holiday, Sukkot, which marks the harvest and means "festival of the huts" in Hebrew.

A treasure hunt for Hanukkah lamps will require participants to travel through the Skirball Museum galleries. It's one of several cultural journeys at the Sunday festival that shines light on Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights, which begins Friday at sundown. Explaining and sharing the holiday with people of all faiths is one of the Hanukkah Festival's goals. "This is a holiday where people fought for their religious victories," says Rabbi Uri D. Herscher, president and CEO of the museum.

Organizers of Sunday's "Chanukah Wonderland" festival had one thing in mind when they created the annual event four years ago. "We wanted to bring every type of Jew in the world together," said Rabbi Moshe Bryski, one of the event's organizers. "It truly does bring the community together. Perhaps many are different in practice, but they're all here enjoying this."

On a crisp morning last week in a Beverly Hills park, Rabbi Boruch Shlomo Cunin prepared for Hanukkah by haggling over building permits, examining electricity sources and excitedly directing workers assembling his 14-foot-high, 30-foot-wide steel and vinyl menorah.

"Many of the holidays in the Jewish religion are rather sad," says Gordon R.A. Fishman, a retired Newport Beach eye surgeon. "This happens to be one of the happy ones." This happy one is Hanukkah, the eight-day Jewish Festival of Lights, which begins Friday at sundown. To celebrate, Fishman and his wife, Hannareta, are sponsoring their fifth annual Orange County Chanukah Concert Sunday at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in Costa Mesa.

Non-Christians are quite familiar with the meaning and observances of Christianity, especially at such pivotal moments as Christmas and Easter. While most of us refrain from celebrating Christmas, we welcome the spirit of the season. Even without taking these holidays as our own, non-Christians benefit from the holiday spirit by being reminded of similar values within their own traditions. The Jewish High Holidays are now upon us.

No matter how hard she tried, Frances Gelbart could not suppress the memories that haunt Holocaust survivors. When she was only 8 years old, Gelbart watched helplessly as her three younger sisters were sent to their deaths at the Auschwitz concentration camp. For decades, she refused to talk about the horrors--even with her three sons--because "I didn't want anyone to share the pain I felt."

Pretending to be the biblical figure Moses, 5-year-old Kyle Sullivan led his people on a make-believe trek from Egypt to Israel on Thursday at the Adat Ari El school and synagogue in North Hollywood. Fellow kindergartners played Egyptian soldiers who drowned in the Red Sea while trying to stop the Exodus of Jewish slaves during the model Seder, a sort of dress rehearsal for the coming feasts celebrating Passover.

At this time of year, as the Jewish High Holidays approach, many otherwise non-observing Jews think about going to temple. The ancient chants and familiar invocations, they muse, might be uplifting. And what better time to reacquaint themselves--and introduce their children--to the religious aspects of their heritage.
