Menorah Lighting, crafts, music and more!
December 4, 2013
An evening of fun for the entire family; crafts for kids, music & more
Something brand new is being added this year to the already lively, fun-filled mix of winter holiday events at Central Green! Join us for a Chanukah experience with a Menorah lighting taking place on December 4, 6:30 PM.
“This Menorah is the ultimate display of joy and unity,” said Rabbi Dovid Goldstein, Director of Chabad- CHAI Learning Center of West Houston, who is erecting the Menorah. “The holiday of Chanukah is a festival of a historic victory and celebration for all times, highlighted by the kindling of Menorahs each night of the holiday. Yet it also contains a universal message for people of all faiths—that ultimately, good will triumph over evil, freedom over oppression, and light over darkness.”
The event will include music, educational crafts for the children, Chanukah refreshments, and fun for all ages. Local dignitaries will be honored with lighting the Menorah.
Chabad, with over 3000 offices and establishments around the globe, is by far the largest network of Jewish religious and social services in the world. There are currently more than 1,000 public Menorahs planned to be lit by Chabad this Chanukah worldwide.
Chabad sponsors the “National Menorah” standing in front of the White House, and “The Largest Menorah in the World” (32 feet high) which stands in New York City’s famed Rockefeller Center.
