Acworth Menorah Lighting CeremonyThe City of Acworth will hold its annual Menorah Lighting Ceremony again on December 20, 2022. 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-days-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. 

For questions pertaining to this event, please contact Mary Beth Gibbs at  mbgibbs@acworth.org.
