Kick Off Hanukkah Celebrations With the Largest Menorah in Brooklyn


    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.
