Hundreds celebrate Chanukah at Crocker Park

Rabbi Mendel Jacobs lights a giant Menorah at Crocker Park.

Hundreds of Westsiders celebrated Chanukah outside the Regal Cinemas at Crocker Park. The annual Chanukah celebration and Giant Menorah lighting hosted by Chabad of the West Side Jewish organization has become a popular tradition for the local Jewish community.

Crowds of children and adults enjoyed an evening of ice skating, Chanukah treats, and entertainment.

The highlight of the night was the kindling of a giant nine-foot-tall Menorah, spreading its warmth and glow all around.
