“Light Up Mamilla,” a project of Chabad of Talbiya-Mamilla organized by Shluchim Rabbi Eli and Chanie Canterman, was the number 8: above and beyond the regular.
A record number of people gathered night following night, to celebrate Jewish pride in the spirit of Chanukah. Even rain couldn’t keep the guests away.
The entire avenue danced and sang with famous artist singers, guests of honor, lively Mayanot Yeshiva boys and surprise appearances – all were introduced by the energetic and lively emcee Yossi Frankel.
Of course, one of the nights was dedicated to children of the Friendship Circle and those with special needs.
Over 8000 people witnessed the festivities of the Mamilla Menorah during Chanukah 2018-5779, as they become a yearly fixture on the Jerusalem calendar.
