The Chabad Jewish Center of SnoCo invites the public to celebrate the Festival of Lights with its annual giant Menorah lighting celebration, this year titled “light of healing.”
The celebration will be at 4 p.m., Nov. 28, at Lynnwood City Hall, 19100 44th Ave W, Lynnwood.
The Menorah lights symbolize the infinite value of every human being and the power people have, to overcome the challenges they have all faced these past two years.
The outdoor (covered) event will feature remarks by Rabbi Paltiel and local elected officials, as well as the kindling of the giant nine-foot Menorah, prepackaged delicious holiday treats, balloon twisting and musical performance by the Seattle based Klez Katz Klezmer band.
The kindling of the Menorah each night of the holiday highlights Chanukah, a celebration for all time.
“It is a holiday that enriches our lives with the light of tradition,” said Rabbi Berel Paltiel, director of the Chabad Jewish Center. “In ancient times our ancestors rededicated the Temple in Jerusalem with the Menorah. Today, we rededicate ourselves to bringing light and healing to our world and making this world a better and brighter place.”
