The City of Acworth invites everyone to join us for our 11th Annual Menorah Lighting Ceremony on Tuesday, December 12 at 6:00 p.m. at Logan Farm Park. 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 burned 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.
