New York City’s Premier and Largest Chanukah event will begin Sunday, December 18th at 4:00 pm at the Grand Army Plaza entrance to Prospect Park.
The free community event will feature the world-famous Zusha live-in-concert, in addition to hot latkes and special gifts for the children.
Rabbi Shimon Hecht, Director of Chabad Park Slope, highlighted that this year is a year of Hakhel and in this spirit all men, women and children are encouraged to participate. “Unfortunately, Brooklyn has been a source of anti-Jewish rhetoric, hate crimes and revisionist history. Chanukah is the miraculous victory of light. Now is the time to publicly display our commitment to our history and traditions. We will not be bullied. We will not be deterred. From Brooklyn, NY we will deliver to the world our message of light and truth stronger than ever before.”
Due to the height of the huge menorah, the gold-colored steel structure will be lit using a special 45-foot boom lift. Kerosene lanterns with specially designed glass chimneys shelter the Chanukah lights from the outdoor elements.
