The Union County Torah Center-Chabad is pleased to announce that there will be a Menorah Lighting ceremony in downtown Westfield at the train station on North Ave. on Thursday, December 7, at 6:30 PM.
The Mountainside Menorah Lighting will take place near the Municipal building by New Providence Rd. & Route 22. on Sunday, December 10 at 5:00pm.
The Cranford Menorah Lighting will take place across from the municipal building near the gazebo, on Monday, December 11, at 6:30 PM.
All the Menorah Lightings will have a “Gelt Drop” where a fireman will rain down chocolate gelt from high atop the fire ladder while children (and adults) have the opportunity to collect as much chocolate gelt as they can. There will also be LED light up dreidel & menorah necklaces for all children in attendance and of course delicious Chanukah donuts.
Chanukah, the Festival of Lights, begins on Thursday, December 7 at sundown and continues through Thursday, December 14. Chanukah focuses largely on the meaning of civil liberties and religious freedom and has served as a source of this message for nearly twenty-two centuries. The Menorah contains a universal message for all people of all faiths – a message of freedom, of good over evil, of light over darkness.
