PHOTOS: Senator Singer joins Center for Jewish Life in lighting 9-foot Menorah in downtown Lakewood

img_1012For the first time in Lakewood, a nine-foot Menorah was installed at the New Jersey Transit bus terminal in honor of the upcoming Chanukah.

Rabbi Yossi Kanelsky of Center for Jewish Life in Marlboro invited Senator Robert Singer to attend the Menorah lighting.

“For the past 13 years, Center for Jewish Life has sponsored menorahs at major highways, government offices, hospitals and shopping centers,” says Rabbi Yossi Kanelsky. “This year, this Lakewood location brings the total count of large public menorah displays by Center for Jewish Life to 40!”

Rabbi Kanelsky added, “The specialty of having large Menorah displays in public areas lies within the Mitzvah of publicizing the miracle of Chanukah.”

Over 2 million people will view the large Menoras throughout New Jersey during the holiday of Chanukah, Rabbi Yossi Kanelsky said.
