Chanukah candles to Light up Historic Downtown Norcross this Holiday Season

Atlanta, GA--  On December 1st, 2010, Chabad of Gwinnett will light the sky of Norcross with a public 10-foot Grand Menorah erected in Historic Downtown Norcross.  Rabbi Yossi Lerman, director of Chabad of Gwinnett, will light the Chanukah candles.  The menorah lighting ceremony will be followed by a celebration with dancing, singing and eating the traditional Chanukah treats of hot latkes and doughnuts. The eight-day Jewish festival of Chanukah begins on Wednesday, December 1 this year, and this event kicks off the community-wide observance. 

Immediately following the Grand Menorah lighting is a Chanukah party at the Iron Horse Tavern in Norcross. This party is for adults in the community. On Sunday, December 5th, families have the opportunity to enjoy a Chanukah Skating party at Skate-a-Long USA in Lilburn.

Gwinnett’s menorah is one of thousands of large public menorahs sponsored by Chabad throughout the world, helping children and adults of all walks of life discover and enjoy the holiday message of religious freedom and tolerance.
