30th Annual Calgary Community Menorah Light

With sharing and gifts of warm clothing for those in need, Calgary’s Jewish community invites the public to join us as we celebrate the 30th Annual Community Chanukah Menorah Lighting Ceremony at City Hall’s Atrium Monday, December 3rd at 5:30 pm.

Members of Calgary City Council will be participating in this year’s ceremony. Throughout this year’s program, we will be showing highlights of the past 30 years of celebrations.

The lighting of the Menorah is the focal point of the celebration of Chanukah – an annual festival which commemorates a 2100-year-old historically significant battle for religious freedom. Jews worldwide light their menorahs (candelabras) as a gesture and public display of remembrance and commitment. Chabad Lubavitch, a global Jewish educational organization, organizes community lightings such as this one throughout the world including at the White House, in front of Parliaments in Canada, Britain, Australia, and the Alberta Provincial Legislature.

Each year hundreds of Calgarians come to join community leaders and dignitaries as they celebrate with the lighting ceremony, traditional Klezmer music, dancing, and eating traditional potato pancakes called “latkes”.
