Chanukah at The Barnacle

Chanukah_v1bJoin us as we light up the night at The Barnacle Historic State Park, 3485 Main Highway in downtown Coconut Grove. Bring the whole family on Tuesday, December 3 at 5:30 p.m. for a waterfront menorah lighting and a performance by Atarah Montessori Academy. Enjoy entertainment and crafts, BBQ and Latkes. Admission is free.

Long ago, a small band of faithful Jews defeated one of the mightiest armies on earth, drove the Greeks from Israel and reclaimed the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. Inside the Temple, they found only a single cruse of olive oil to light the menorah. The one-day supply burned for eight days.

Chanukah, the eight-day festival of light, commemorates these miracles and celebrates the triumph of light over darkness. This year marks the very first menorah lighting at The Barnacle and the first time since 1888 that Chanukah occurs during the Thanksgiving season.

Chanukah at The Barnacle is sponsored by Chabad of the Grove and The Barnacle Society. The Barnacle Historic State Park is administered by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. For additional information, please call (305) 442-6866 or visit
