As the crowd gathered, Vice Mayor Josh Leibman joined Rabbi Levi Friedman and lit the Menorah for all to see. Children of all ages, moms and dads and grandparents were there to help celebrate the Holiday and to enjoy live music and lots of good food, including the traditional hot latkes (potato pancakes), jelly doughnuts, chocolate coins, crafts and for the young at heart, face painting.
Rabbi Friedman is the Director of the Chabad Jewish Student Center at FIU and he shared some of his wisdom with us: “Everyone has light inside themselves. The public Menorah lighting reminds us that we need to share the light with our neighbors and to the entire community.”
