If I spoke Yiddish, I'd be able to accurately pronounce this event with the appropriate throat-clearing, guttural gusto it requires. Since I can't, I'll leave it up to the more seasoned folks at Congregation Nahalat Shalom (3606 Rio Grande NW). Their annual Funky Khanikeh Freylekh today at 5:38 p.m. is the perfect way to prepare for the start of Hanukkah, with a 20-piece klezmer orchestra, activities for the kids, an auction, a used book sale, arts and crafts, and delicious food. Don't forget to bring a few items to donate to Roadrunner Food Bank and Project Share. Admission is $2 for adults and a buck for those 18-and-under. For more, you can call the congregation at 343-8227 or visit nahalatshalom.org.
