The Festival is marked by the lighting of an eight-pronged Candelabrum called a Menorah, or Chanukiah, commemorating the symbol of victory of a small Jewish army against a vastly oppressive Assyrian Greek regime during the 2nd century BCE.
The Annual Menorah Lighting and Fair is open to the public and free of charge. Food and other items will be sold. Participants will be treatedto delicious hot potato latkes and prizes.
