This year, give yourself and your family an inspiring and uplifting Chanukah experience. The Achdus Organization of Lakewood is inviting the entire community to the traditional menorah lighting to celebrate the third night of Chanukah, Sunday, December 13 beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Lakewood Town Square, Clifton Avenue and Third Street, Lakewood. This joyous family event will feature noted rabbis, welcoming remarks by Lakewood Mayor Robert W. Singer and Deputy Mayor Steven Langert, live music, singing, dancing, and donuts.
Yaakov Jacobs, the director of the Achdus Organization, says, “The Chanukah Menorah teaches us an important lesson in today’s world—a little amount of light can dispel a lot of darkness. In these trying times in which it seems that the world around us is drifting apart, it will be through our unity that we will all combat the forces of evil and terror.”
Mayor Singer says, “The light of the Chanukah menorah should be a reminder to everyone, here in Lakewood and around that world, to remember that miracles do happen. Every generation has its challenges, but all of us working together can overcome them.” [Reader submitted].
