On the sixth night of Chanuka, a 12 foot tall menorah was lit outside the iconic Empire State Building in the heart of Manhattan, spreading the light to the ten of thousands of people who traverse midtown Manhattan.

Outshining the Manhattan skyline, the giant menorah symbolized the victory of the spiritual over physical, the soul over the body, inspiring all those who passed by.

With the recent surge of antisemitic incidents following the Oct. 7 terrorist attacks in Israel, Jews are doubling down on their identity and observance, choosing instead to more visibly celebrate their identity this Chanuka with more confidence and resolve.
