Eight Crazy Nights in One
Miamis official celebration of Hanukkah (which began this past Friday night) will take the Festival of Lights to a truly sensory level, featuring a twelve-foot-long, six-foot-high menorah with candles illuminated by showers of Fourth of July-style sparks. Mayor Manny Diaz will be the first of many dignitaries to light a candle for the centuries-old tradition.
In ancient times, our ancestors rededicated the temple in Jerusalem with the menorah. Today we rededicate ourselves to making this world a better and brighter place," said Rabbi Yakov Fellig, spiritual leader of Chabad of South Dade. Between bursts of fire lighting up the sky, starry-eyed spectators will be electrified by a fire-knife dancer as they nosh on traditional latkes and jelly doughnuts, play dreidel games, enjoy live music, and sing Hanukkah songs. The free celebration begins tonight at 6:00 at Miami City Hall, 3500 Pan American Dr., Coconut Grove. Call 305-445-5444 Ext. 204, or visit www.chabadmiami.com.
