VIDEO & PHOTOS: Menorah-lighting ceremony held at Lakewood Police Headquarters; Menorah lit by Department’s first Orthodox Jewish officer

While Lakewood police officers enjoyed a pre-Holiday lunch at police headquarters today, a Menorah-lighting ceremony was held nearby.

For the first time ever, an Orthodox Jewish police officer, Officer Wolf, lit the Menorah for the event. (The Pirsum Judaica-designed Menorah was lent to the Department by Judaica Plaza.)

The event, coordinated by Special Operations Coordinator Ben Inzelbuch, was attended by Police Chief Greg Meyer, as well as by several police chaplains and guests.

  1. If you listen carefully, he did not say The Shem H-shem nor did he make a Shehecheyanu although it was the first night. I guess he realized that there is no mitzvah to light in Police headquarters since it’s not his his Bayis.

  2. Out of curiosity why the Lakewood scoop doesn’t post the Christmas tree lighting. Santa coming to town. This site should not only favor one religion and only post the bad about everyone else. Their should be equality for all.
