Light the Menorah.

Rabbi Yosef Langer menorah lighting service in San Francisco Union Square

Tonight begins the first night of Chanukah, the Festival of Lights, where Jews around the world light the Chanukah menorah for eight nights.

In San Francisco's downtown Union Square, people of all faiths gather as an annual tradition since 1975, to light a giant menorah. This San Francisco tradition was the brainchild of rock and roll concert promoter Bill Graham. Now there are thousands of similar celebrations world-wide.


To all who celebrate, may this beautiful eight day festival of lights be joyous for you and your loved ones.
