Hanukkah menorah lighting to take place

Rabbi Mordechai Richler
Chabad Jewish Center

The Ski Run Marina and Chabad Jewish Center of Lake Tahoe invite the entire community to celebrate the Festival of Lights at a public Menorah lighting ceremony on Sunday at Ski Run Marina village.

Hanukkah, The Festival of Lights, for many of us brings back fond memories of childhood years and serves to renew our sense of identity. The Hanukkah lights provide us with warmth, joy, strength and inspiration. Such is the purpose of a community-wide celebration to be held at the ski run marina village this Hanukkah.

Following the kindling, the program will feature Hanukkah gifts, childrens activities and treats.

Hanukkah, 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, our ancestors rededicated the temple in Jerusalem with the menorah. Today, we rededicate ourselves to making this world a better and brighter place.

Hanukkah also propagates the universal message that ultimately, good will prevail over evil, freedom over oppression and light over darkness.

In its Hanukkah outreach campaign, Chabad of Lake Tahoe and surrounding Communities joins thousands of Chabad centers across the globe that are staging 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 Hanukkah with Chabad.

Join Chabad in a public display of unity at this exciting Menorah Lighting Ceremony. Bring the kids and make this your special Hanukkah celebration.

The lighting will take place Dec. 1 at 4:30 p.m. at Ski Run Marina village, 900 Ski Run Blvd. No. 1 in South Lake Tahoe.
