What is Luminaria Night

On a single evening at dusk over 4,000 homes in Bethlehem and beyond will light luminaries long neighborhood streets and sidewalks. We do this to remember those in need throughout the holiday season. Luminaria Night accompanies other December holidays that all depict the imagery of light in different ways: Hanukkah, the Winter Solstice, and Christmas.

How to buy Luminaria Kits

One Luminaria Kit is a $10 donation and consists of ten white paper bags, ten votive candles, and ten cups of sand. If you saved sand from last year, a kit without sand is still a $10 donation to New Bethany. Methods of payment include checks, PayPal, Venmo, credit card, and cash.
