Acworth invites everyone to Logan Farm Park for the 11th Annual Menorah Lighting Ceremony on Tuesday, December 12 at 6:00 p.m. Rabbi Zalman Charytan from the Chabad Jewish Center will officiate the lighting with Mayor Tommy Allegood.
The eight-day Jewish holiday commemorates the Jewish Maccabees’ military victory over Syrian-Greek oppression more than 2,000 years ago. During Chanukah, Jews across the world celebrate the miracle of light that burnt for eight days out of a single-day worth of oil found in the Temple. One Chanukah candle is lit the first night, and an additional candle is lit each successive night. The holiday is a celebration of religious freedom and hope.
