Chanukah, a celebration for all time, is highlighted by the kindling of the Menorah each night of the holiday. “It is a holiday that enriches our lives with the light of tradition,” said Rabbi Eli Kornfeld, director of Chabad of Hunterdon County. “In ancient times our ancestors rededicated the Temple in Jerusalem with the Menorah. Today, we rededicate ourselves to making this world a better and brighter place.” Chanukah also propagates the universal message that ultimately good will prevail over evil, freedom over oppression and light over darkness.

As part of the Chanukah outreach campaign, Chabad of Hunterdon County joins thousands of Chabad Centers across the globe that stage similar public displays of the Menorah and its symbolic lights. From Australia to Africa, Columbia to Hong Kong, New York City’s Ground Zero to the White House Lawn, hundreds of thousands will experience the joy of Chanukah with Chabad.
