On Tuesday the traditional, large menorah was set up in the Western Wall Plaza in preparation for the upcoming Chanukah festival. It’s a lovely menorah made of bronze, stretching more than two meters tall, and two meters wide, and weighing in at around one ton. It took around seven months to create, according to the Western Wall Heritage Foundation website.
Each night of the Chanukah holiday, beginning on Sunday, 24 Kislev, 5780 (December 22, 2019) through Monday, 2 Tevet, 5780 (December 30, 2019), there will be a public Chanukah candle-lighting ceremony at the Western Wall Plaza in the presence of dignitaries and rabbis. So join the festivities if you’re in town!!
