ROCHESTER, Minn- Sunday marks the start of Hanukkah. People at Chabad of Southern Minnesota celebrated with the lighting of the menorah. This is the largest menorah in Southern Minnesota. The eight-day Jewish celebration known as the festival of light is celebrated with a nightly menorah lighting, special prayers, and food. Rabbi Shloime Greene says this year they added a toy drive to their festivities.
"Hanukkah is a time of sharing and giving and spreading light then what better way than to have a toy drive,” Greene said.
The toys collected Sunday will be donated Monday to the Ronald Mcdonald house. For a list of this weeks Hanukkah activites click on this link: https://www.chabadrochestermn.com/templates/section_cdo/aid/4530206/jewish/Chanukah.htm
