Menorah Lighting To Take Place Around the World

Celebrations of the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, commemorated through the lighting of the traditional Hanukkah menorah, will be taking place across the world, according to an article by the Washington Post.

Menorah lightings – hosted by Chabad-Lubavitch – are listed near the Eiffel Toower in Paris, the Ellipse in Washington, DC, the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, Trafalgar Square, London, the Western Wall in Jerusalem, the Central Park skating rink in New York City, at half-time of the Miami Heat’s December 12 basketball game at American Airlines Arena in Miami, and at hundreds of smaller locations around the world.
