Chanukah began tonight at 5pm when our man in the NYS Senate Daniel Squadron “lit” the giant menorah at Borough Hall Plaza.
Not to be out done, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz handed out gelt to all the kids on hand.
As usual, Rabbi Aaron L. Raskin of Congregation B’nai Avraham played host. In addition to Sen. Squadron and Marty, Council Member Stephen Levin, Council Member David Greenfield, Council Member Letitia James and Council Member Jumaane Williams attended.
Meanwhile, the wee ones at Kiddie Korner have created their own menorahs to celebrate. Check out more here.
