It’s been presiding over Hanukkah celebrations at Grand Army Plaza for over thirty years and it’s time once again for the lighting of the 32-foot menorah.
The first night of Hanukkah kicks off on Sunday, December 22 with live music, latkes and gifts for children. With the assistance of a cherry picker, Rabbi Shimon Hecht and special guests will light the menorah during lighting ceremonies each night of the holiday.
Celebrations on the first night start at 4 p.m. For the start times on each subsequent night check out the full calendar online. All the evening events are free and open to the public.
