On Monday night, the fourth night of Chanukah, Chabad at Stony Brook held a public Menorah lighting and Chanukah concert by singer Sholom Jacobs and keyboard player Avram Zamist of the Five Towns.
Over 200 children and adults came to witness the kindling of the 8 foot Menorah, and Assemblyman Steve Englebright was present to give his Chanukah greetings.
Shliach Rabbi Motti Grossbaum spoke about the significance of Chanukah in these days and how every person can bring light into the world through one kind deed.
Everyone enjoyed hot latkes, doughnuts, and the lively singing of Sholom Jacobs, who got the crowd on their feet dancing, with the Menorah’s flames nearby.
The lighting and concert was held at the conclusion of a successful car Menorah parade through the streets of Stony Brook with over 50 car Menorahs, including a stretch Hummer and two stretch Escalades, spreading the light of Chanukah around town.
Bachurim Levi, Mendel and Sholom Ber Grossbaum, Yitzi Klein and Chanoch Rosenfeld were there to help.
