Close to 1000 people attended the grand celebration hosted by Chabad of Weston for the fifth night of Chanukah.
The event was preceded by a 40-car menorah parade led by a police escort throughout the town with the Hebrew school children in the Chanukah Hummer limousine.
The celebration continued at the Weston Town Center, where the 18’ menorah was lit by dignitaries and Rabbi Yisroel Spalter.
Throngs of people stood by to witness this great Kiddush Hashem.
Festive Chanukah T-shirts were handed out to everyone and hot latkes and donuts were enjoyed by all.
Master magician and illusionist Shimi Illuzini mesmerized the crowd with his outstanding performance that left everyone asking, “how did he do it?”
Every child received Chanukah gelt and everyone rushed to buy raffle tickets for a new iPad.
“Everyone had an amazing time!” said Weston resident Cindy Croituru, “congratulations on a fantastic night! I never had such a feeling of familial closeness with so many Jewish people coming out to celebrate, it really was like one big happy family. Thank you Rabbi and Rebetzin, you really made it happen!”
