Chanukah is a week away and Chanukah on Ice NYC will take place on Monday, the 2nd night, November 29, 6 - 9 at Wolllman Rink in Central Park. 

Here are  EIGHT things you should know about the iconic event:

1. It's our 14th year in Central Park We are so happy to be back at Wollman Rink, which is under new management! It's been renovated and we are excited to skate in such a beautiful facility. 

2. We are once again serving hotdogs, soups, donuts and hot drinks, all-inclusive! We got four delicious kinds of donuts; you get to choose! 

3. It's always better to RSVP before our event for faster entry onto the rink. It's even more important this year with the added precautions and checks.  Online registration will close on Sunday at midnight so be sure to register before! The waiver will also be emailed to all registrants. 

4. If you bring your own skates, it's cheaper; its $22 vs $30 if you need skates. Under 3 is free so bring the littles and let them try the ice! At the door it's more, so rsvp before!

5. We want to keep everyone safe at Chanukah on Ice NYC! All skaters will need to sign a waiver and if you are over 12, and show proof of a negative test, OR vaccination. We have rapid testing on the spot as well, courtesy of Lincoln Diagnostics, if you didn't bring a PCR test or proof of vaccination! 

6. We are so happy to announce that Yoni Stokar will be back rocking it from the stage, providing us with both live music and DJing for part of the night! He will be performing during the Ice Menorah Lighting as well.

7. If you can be a sponsor of Chanukah on Ice at the 360 or 500 level, we've got some special good treats for you, including warm COI beanies, cool Chanukah lightup swag and more. So when you RSVP, choose to be a COI Maccabee, bring some friends, and help us cover the costs of this incredible event!

8. We are so excited to welcome our dear friend, Laurant Morali, CEO of Kushner Properties, to the stage to light the Ice Menorah. We might even get a guitar solo from him :)
