Public Menorah Lighting 5779

We were delighted that over 150 people came out for the public Menorah lighting at White Oaks Mall!

It was very meaningful that Dr. Marc Garfinkel, a Pittsburgh native, lit the Shamesh in honor of those killed in the devastating Pittsburgh massacre just a few weeks ago.

This year’s “Honorary Lamplighters” were Mr. And Mrs. Ralph and Betty Hurwitz, strong pillars of the Jewish community, for many decades.

A special thank you to Senator-elect Steve McClure, County Sheriff Jack Campbell, County Clerk Don Gray, County Auditor Andy Goleman and Ward 5 Alderman Andrew Proctor for honoring the Jewish community with your presence.

Thank you Phil Steinberg for hooking up the sound system so we were all able to enjoy the beautiful Chanukah music.

Thank you Steve Rambach for the great pictures which allow us to remember all the fun that we had.

Thank you Starbucks for sponsoring the coffee, hot drinks go a long way with the cold weather outside.
