Join the City of Kennesaw, in partnership with Chabad of Kennesaw, for the Menorah Lighting in Depot Park Wednesday, December 21st at 5:30 PM. This will be the fourth night of Hanukkah. The eight day Jewish holiday commemorates the Jewish Maccabees’ military victory over Syrian-Greek oppression more than 2,000 years ago. During Hanukkah, Jews across the world celebrate the miracle of light that burnt for eight days out of a single-days-worth of oil found in the Temple. One Hanukkah candle is lit the first night and an additional candle is lit each successive night. The holiday is a celebration of religious freedom and hope. The Menorah will be placed on Main Street where it was last year to begin with, moved to Depot Park for the event so there is enough room for attendees, and then moved back to Main Street. There will be a reception before with refreshments available. This will be the third year the event has been held.
