Maynard Menorah Lighting

All are welcome at the Third Annual Maynard Menorah Lighting on Memorial Park! Help mark the Jewish Festival of Lights – a celebration of freedom and community – and watch the candles be lit on the 12-foot-high menorah!

Rabbi Braham David of Congregation Beth Elohim will do the honors of lighting the candles. There’ll be music and singing and maybe some Hanukkah treats ��
Our hope is to bring folks together in common holiday spirit and build bonds between neighbors of all faiths (and none). Let’s celebrate the light, gather as a community and have a blast!
