Hoffman SummerWood Community in West Hartford hosted its fifth annual Menorah Exhibit featuring 100 menorahs belonging to residents. Family and friends enjoyed latkes and Chanukah music while they perused the menorahs, many of which were treasured family heirlooms. “The exhibit reminds us all of our family traditions in past years and brings back a lot of memories,” said SummerWood resident David Silverman, pictured here (center) with (l to r) Marvin Silverman, Allison Levi, and Gabi and Zack Silverman.
