More than 600 people gathered in multiple places in Crown Heights to celebrate Chanukah with a Public Menorah Lighting.
For the second year, the Lincoln Place Shul and Beis Hamedrash partnered with local residents in Northern Crown Heights to bring the lights and inspiration of Chanukah to new locations.
Many prizes, gifts and donuts were distributed to participants every night, and great resolutions for learning Torah were undertaken by many.
This year had several innovations compared to the previous years: a Menorah was lit in front of the Prospect Place park, and a public lighting occurred on Eastern Parkway and Troy.
The last night’s lighting was graciously hosted by Rabbi Dr. and Mrs. Rosenberg on Sterling Place and Troy, and Rabbi Israel Roseman – senior Patient / Physician Liaison for NYU LANGONE Medical center in Manhattan and Brooklyn – who came specially from Williamsburg with his family was honored with the kindling of the Menorah.
Rabbi Roseman was so inspired and uplifted by the event that he requested to have a Public Menorah Lighting in front of his house in the heart of Williamsburg for next year.
Additionally, the Lincoln Beis Hamidrash partnered with Rabbi and Mrs. Levi Y. Engelberg to organize a Public Menorah Lighting in Southern Crown Heights, on East New York and Kingston Avenue.
More than a hundred people proudly and happily gathered around the Menorah on the last night of Chanukah on East New York Avenue.
The Lincoln Place Shul and Beis Hamedrash would like to personally thank and applaud those who partnered and graciously opened their doors to make these Pirsumei Nisas possible :
