UCF Jewish groups to light can-orah during food drive Chabad, Hillel, Jewish sorority Alpha Epsilon Phi and Jewish fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi are joining forces at the University of Central Florida to bring food to those who need it the most. The groups will be collecting cans now through the end of Chanukah. The cans will be donated to the Pearlman Food Pantry, part of Jewish Family Servicesaspartofits Get Caught Caring campaign. The organizers are request- ing that the canned food be dropped of at the Hillel Office (Room 305 of the Student Union) or the Chabad House (600 Oak Circle, Oviedo). A highlight of the canned food drive will be a "can-orah lighting" on the second night of Chanukah, Thursday, Dec. 2 at 7:30 p.m. The event will take place at the stage behind the ice skating rink in front of the UCF arena. About 300 students are expected. Each student will receive their own menorah. "The can-orah idea is a fun way for the students to get involved with community and creates more awareness ofgMng during Chanukah," says Vicky Hajdenberg, Ph.D., executive director of Central Florida Hillel. Laktes, doughnuts and re- freshments will be served. The invitation is open to the entire Orlando community. Those at- tending will be able to skate for a discounted price.
