Chanukah Festival of Lights

First Lighting, Sunday, December 22, 2019

A local miracle happened in San Francisco in 1975 when community leaders joined together to create the first big menorah public celebration of Chanukah outside of Israel. Today that spark of innovation has spread to annual Chanukah celebrations in over 500 cities worldwide including; Berlin, Paris, Buenos Aires, Brisbane and Ho Chi Minh City. In San Francisco the legacy of innovation to spread the light continues.
