The Jewish Federation of the Berkshires will present two family Hanukkah concerts on Sunday, Dec. 9.

The first will take place at 11:30 a.m. at Hevreh of Southern Berkshire, 270 State Road, Great Barrington; the second at 3 p.m. at the Berkshire Mall, Macy’s Court, Old State Road, Lanesborough.

The programs, which will feature singer Felicia Sloin and the puppets of Kate Holdsworth, are free and open to all, with families invited to donate new children’s pajamas to be given to the Berkshire Office of the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families.

Sloin, a classically trained performer, employees song, dance, and sign language to inspire and entertain as she joins with the antics of Holdsworth’s puppetry to bring to all ages the spirit, culture, and values embodied in the Hanukkah holiday.

Pajamas may be donated at the concerts or in advance at Hevreh or the Jewish Federation of the Berkshires, 196 South St., Pittsfield.
