More than one thousand people got together for the first night of Chanukah for a joint party and menorah lighting in Delray Beach, Florida.
More than 1000 people came together Sunday night for the first night of Chanuka at Delray Beach, Florida where the local Chabad Houses led by Rabbi Sholom Ber Korf, Rabbi Yossi Schapiro, Rabbi Yaakov Perman, and Rabbi Mendy Heber worked together to make an event their entire community could enjoy together.
People from all walks of life joined to enjoy a fire show, bounce houses, Gelt Drops, a petting zoo, and arts and crafts. Children especially enjoyed popcorn, cotton candy, doughnuts, and latkes.
Attendees commented on how beautiful the weather was for such a large outdoor event and took away inspiration from an evening of such achdus.
Brian, a community member commented, “during this time of Chanukah it is more important than ever to show the world who we are. Especially during the current climate of antisemitism in the world, we have to be proud.”
