Chanukah is the eight-day Jewish "Festival of Lights," this year beginning on the evening of December 2nd and culminating on December 10. Each evening at sunset an additional candle is lit to commemorate the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem some 2000 years ago. “The message of Chanukah,” explains Rabbi Shimy Heidingsfeld, Executive Director of Chabad of Moorpark, “is one of hope in the face of extreme adversity. It’s a message with broad appeal to everyone who believes in religious freedom and that faith and determination can triumph against even the most overwhelming odds.”
“This Menorah is the ultimate display of joy and unity,” said Devorah Heidingsfeld, organizer of the event. “The holiday of Chanukah is a festival of a historic victory and celebration for all times, highlighted by the kindling of Menorahs each night of the holiday. Yet it also contains a universal message for people of all faiths—that ultimately, good will triumph over evil, freedom over oppression, and light over darkness.
Join us in a public display of unity at this exciting Menorah Lighting Ceremony.
