The City of Light celebrated the first night of Chanuka with a Menorah lighting at the base of the Eiffel Tower, one of Europe’s most iconic landmarks.
The giant menorah lighting was arranged by Head Shliach to Paris Rabbi Mendel Azimov, and the event was graced with the presence of the Mr. Clément Beaune Minister of Transport, Jean Jacques Curiel of the Radical Party and representatives of the City of Paris, and other community leaders and dignitaries.
The entire event was broadcast live by satellite to the Kosel in Yerushalayim and the Rebbe’s room in NY.
