It has been brought to my attention that the night of our Holiday Gathering is the first night of Hannukah. I was unaware of this when I choose Dec 20th as the date. Having said that, I also could have been more thorough in making use of information to help myself make more inclusive choices.
I apologize for this mistake for two reasons; 1) it puts people who honor this holiday in a position of missing our community event and 2) it demonstrates a lack of sensitivity and understanding to diverse communities.
I thought about rescheduling the party but decided against it due to the planning efforts already in place and the time we have at our disposal.
I hope to enjoy the company of many of you on Dec 20th. For those of you who will instead be involved in Hannukah rituals I wish you a blessed holiday.
