Happy Hanukkah



The Chabad Israel Center of the Upper East Side found a creative way to celebrate the Chanukah festivities. Rabbi Uriel and Shevy Vigler invited the community to ‘Chanukah in Candyland,’ where children assembled a six-foot Menorah made of Jelly Beans. The children beamed with excitement as they saw their Jelly Bean Menorah being lit.
