New York City Mayor-elect Eric Adams joined Chabad of Ghana, Rabbi Noach Majeski, and the Ghana Jewish community for a Menorah lighting and Chanukah celebration tonight in Accra.

While in Ghana for a visit described by his spokesman as a “spiritual journey,” Adams attended Chabad of Ghana’s Chanukah celebration. 

He addressed the crowd, praising the Rebbe and the many men and women who have opened Chabad Houses around the globe to spread the energy and spirit of Judaism. “We are looking at the seeds that he planted,” he said. “The miracle of the oil, of the light never going out, is what Chanukah represents to all of us.”

He shared how the purpose of his visit to the African nation was “to heal from the wounds of slavery and reconnect with his ancestors,” by turning turn pain into purpose, as the Rebbe taught. 

Adam’s talk was greeted with enthusiastic applause.

Rabbi Noach and Alti Majesky have been leading the Chabad Center in Accra since 2015, providing for the Jewish needs of local residents and tourists. Accra is the capital and largest city of Ghana, a country located along the Gulf of Guinea and Atlantic Ocean, in West Africa.
