Hanukkah lightingsHoliday Menorah Lighting

Hanukkah is 1 of the 2 major December holidays celebrated in Bergen County.  Christmas is the other followed by Kwanza and New Year’s Eve.  As a result many towns have both giant menorahs and Christmas trees in their town square or other public place.  Holiday menorah lighting usually includes a celebration too so it’s a lot of fun for all of us.


Here are menorah lightings in Bergen County –

There may be towns I’ve missed in addition to these.  While I’ve spent a good deal of time looking up Menorah lightings, there may be some HanukkahI’ve not found.  Please contact me with any I’ve missed.

Also I found a great website that has everything you want to know about Hanukkah.  Because I’m not Jewish, this fun and informative website is a big help.  As a result, I better understand and appreciate Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights.  To quote Martha Stewart, that’s a good thing.
