Lighting the menorah for Hanukkah

Posted

Latkes, donuts and gelt accompanied the menorah lighting Dec. 2 held by the Chabad of Northwest Metro Denver in the outdoor space by the library in Olde Town Arvada. The lighting symbolized the first night of the Jewish holiday Hanukkah.

“Hanukkah is a time for family,” said Leah Brackman, co-director of Chabad of Northwest Metro Denver. “The idea of lighting the menorah is to spread light into the world.”

Rabbi Benjy Brackman called attendees to continue to think about spreading light each night of Hanukkah as they light the menorah at home.

“The idea of adding additional candles is the idea of adding more goodness to the world, and boy do we need more goodness today than any other time,” he said. “Think of something you can do to add more light to the world. Think of something each night you can do to make this world a better place.”
