First “Public” Menorah was a car Menorah, created by Shmuel (Mulie) Lipskier.
First “Goverment” Menorah was the Carter Menorah lighting with Avrohom Shemtov.
First Grand Public Menorah was the Menorah in Francisco California created by Chaim Yitzchak (Itche) Drizin.
Everyone should take their credit and a deep bow.

A timely tribute

We owe the Rebbe and his devoted Chassid so much for initiating this , and all other magnificent public lightings. And kudos to this who helped it happen- mr. Aizenstadt, Nathan Lewin and so many others
