Acworth Menorah Lighting CeremonyThe City of Acworth invites everyone to join us for our 10th Annual Menorah Lighting Ceremony on Wednesday, December 1, the fourth night of Chanukah, at 6:00 p.m. at Logan Farm Park, 4405 Cherokee Street, Acworth 30101.  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-days-worth of oil found in the Temple. One Chanukah candle is lit the first night, November 28, 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 Jeff Chase at  jchase@acworth.org.
