Wellington Celebration Begins Chanukah Holiday

Chabad of Wellington invited the community to a Grand Menorah Lighting on Sunday, Dec. 2 at the Wellington Amphitheater. The celebration on the first night of the Jewish holiday of Chanukah offered “Chanukah Gelt” (chocolate coins) thrown from a fire truck, as well as traditional holiday foods latkes and doughnuts. There was live music, a juggler and more, along with plenty of craft tables to keep the kids busy. Wellington officials joined Rabbi Mendy Muskal to light the menorah.
