Thanks-Giving Square presents Ceremonial Menorah Lighting
In celebration of Chanukah, a ceremonial Menorah lighting, sponsored by Chabad of Dallas, will be held at Thanks-Giving Square. For eight days and nights, people of Jewish faith celebrate the power of light by lighting candles in ascending number: one flame on the first evening, two flames on the second, three on the third, etc. Participants kindle the Chanukah Menorah; recalling that miraculous victory, 22 centuries ago, of quality over quantity, spirit over materialism and the right over might.
All are invited for this special ceremony, where Chabad of Dallas will light the second candle. Entertainment will be provided, as well as a passing out of traditional Sufganiyot, round jelly doughnuts, in observation of the custom of eating fried foods in commemoration of the miracle associated with Temple oil. An assortment of food trucks will also be at the Square for guests’ enjoyment.
