Chanukah begins tonight and Rabbi Aaron L. Raskin of Congregation B'nai Avraham will light Brooklyn's official Menorah, located at Montague and Court Streets, today at 2pm. The Menorah is named in memory of Rabbi Jacob J Hecht.
The Official Lighting Ceremony will take place Monday at 5PM with Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz and a performance by the cast members of That Time of the Year.
The following night, Congregation B'nai Avraham will host a Family Chanukah Party with a Chinese buffet, homemade latkes as well as "an amazing" contortionist, a kickboxing demonstration, children's carnival and "Miracle Lights" video show. (For information download PDF of flyer)
