This celebration featured a menorah lighting, a catered dinner, and a “Magic Beyond Imagination” performance presented by Robert McEntee.

Rabbi Noach Kosofsky told 22News what Hanukkah represents, “Each night we add a candle, so its a symbolism of growing and adding. It’s also a symbolism of light. Bringing light into a dark world.”
