Chabad House joins thousands of Chabad centres across the globe that are staging similar public displays of the menorah and its symbolic lights. From Africa to Australia, Columbia to Hong Kong, an expected eight million people will experience the joy of Chanukah with Chabad.
The Festival of Lights, with public menorah kindling ceremonies each night of the festival begins this coming Saturday evening, December 24, at Chabad’s Goodness & Kindness Centre situated at 8 Stella Street in Sandton.
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.
“In ancient times the Jewish people rededicated the Temple in Jerusalem with the nenorah,” says Rabbi Ari Kievman of the Sandton Chabad shul.
