“Dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, I made it out of clay/ and when it’s dry and ready, oh dreidel I shall play!” Christmas trees and parades grab holiday attention in December, but let’s not forget the eight-day holiday that is Chanukah beginning Dec. 12. Chabad of Eugene will light a public Chanukah menorah at Valley River Center, followed by a community-wide celebration Sunday, Dec. 17, on day six of the holiday festival. The event is part of “the world’s largest Chanukah observance and of 15,000 public menorahs being lit worldwide,” symbolizing a universal message of religious freedom. Mayor Lucy Vinis will be in attendance. “It should be an awesome event,” Rabbi Berel Gurevitch, Chabad’s director/spiritual leader tells EW via email. The lighting will be followed by crafts for kids such as decorating dreidels as well as traditional Chanukah food, such as latkes, jelly doughnuts and chocolate gelt. “And of course an opportunity to take a picture with Judah the Maccabee,” according to the press release. Gurevitch adds, “The menorah serves as a symbol of Eugene’s dedication to preserve and encourage the right and liberty of all its citizens to worship G-d freely, openly, and with pride. Specifically, in America, a nation that was founded upon and vigorously protects the right of every person to practice his or her religion free from restraint and persecution.” 

Chanukah Celebration 4 to 5:30 pm, Sunday, Dec. 17, Valley River Center (outside of the now-closed Sports Authority). For more info about local Chanukah events, go to Jewisheugene.org/chanukahparty. FREE. — Camilla Mortensen

If you’re looking to hear some great local live music, but don’t want to pay a bundle of money to do it, Saturday Market’s Holiday Market has you covered. A few weeks ago EW had a calendar blurb grouping Saturday Market’s Holiday Market and the Holiday Farmer’s Market together, but the two events are very different, says Jacob Strouckel, Saturday Market Holiday Market’s Marketing Director. Luckily, both events take place at the Lane Events Center during roughly the same hours, so you can easily hit each of them. Strouckel says a big draw to Saturday Market’s Holiday Market specifically is its live local music. “Any day at the Holiday Market we’ve got at least nine individual performances,” Strouckel says. “There’s also busking from performers in the hallway out front so there’s music everywhere.” The market offers music from acoustic folk like Aruna Beth Miriam Rose, pictured,  to gospel from the likes of the Inspirational Sounds Choir both of whom played last weekend. This weekend, Strouckel says, people should try and catch performances by the Soromundi Lesbian Chorus of Eugene — they’ll be singing spiritual, political, women’s and multicultural music, according to the Holiday Market’s website — and Larry Pattis. “He’s a traditional classical guitar player,” Strouckel says of Pattis. “Normally to see him you’d have to pay for tickets.” Larry Pattis and the Soromundi Lesbian Chorus are performing on Sunday, Dec. 17, at 11:30 am and 3:15 pm respectively. 

Saturday Market’s Holiday Market is 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday, Dec. 16, and Sunday, Dec. 17, at the Lane Events Center. Admission is always FREE. — Meerah Powell

Cascadia Quest is a local nonprofit that facilitates rites of passage camps — nature-based coming of age camps for boys ages 14-18; the organization is planning on having its first girls’ camp this summer, says Rob Miller, Cascadia Quest’s founder, program designer and lead guide. Cascadia Quest also offers mentorships for young people, facilitates grief song ceremonies and other nature and personal growth-based trips like “vision fasts” for adults — a “vision quest” in which someone goes alone into nature and fasts for three days, according to the its website. Cascadia Quest is holding its only dedicated fundraising event for the year, the Season of Light Gathering and Fundraiser, 6-9 pm Friday, Dec. 15, at Unity of the Valley (3912 Dillard Road). Suggested donation for the event is a sliding scale of $1-$20. The fundraiser is open to everyone and is set up to give the community a taste of what the organization is about. “Our goal is to give people the opportunity to experience what we are good at: creating a warm, supportive, engaged environment for folks to connect with each other and have fun,” Miller says. The event will have several stations based on aspects of human nature: a challenging rope game to address physical strength, an “Elders Booth” to sit with a wise elder and hear and reflect on stories, a chance to make nature-based gifts and other activities. There will also be a bake sale and presentation about rites of passage and mentorship. “Traditional cultures across the world have had some means of challenging a young person and making their transition into adulthood in a meaningful and effective way,” Miller says. “We hope through events like this we can get the word out and attract more youth and adults to this type of work.” For more information, visit CascadiaQuest.org. — Meerah Powell
