Glatt kosher food will be available and a postgame Chanukah party will take place on the court.

Jewish Heritage Night is being organized through Chabad of South Florida, which has over 140 centers throughout the Sunshine State.

“We hope to demonstrate with our wonderful fun-filled and inspiring event that there’s no conflict with being a sports fan, celebrating Chanukah and being proud of your Jewish heritage,” said Rabbi Chaim Lipskar of the Shul of Downtown.

Organizer Rabbi Pinny Andrusier of Chabad SW Broward added, “It’s guaranteed to be a fun evening for everyone and hopefully a Chanukah victory for the Miami Heat.”
