Community Chanukah Celebrations with Chabad

From Thursday, Dec. 7 through Friday, Dec. 15, the Chabad of Camden and Burlington Counties will be holding its annual menorah lightings in the following locations:

  • 18’ Menorah Lighting at the Barclay Farms Shopping Center in Cherry Hill along with a Car Menorah Parade,
  • Medford Chanukah Village Walk,
  • Hainesport,
  • Moorestown,
  • Haddonfield,
  • Collingswood,
  • Florence, NJ Chanukah Events 

In the face of hate, divisiveness, and anti-Semitism, Chabad broadens its community-wide Chanukah programs to bring its community together in unity and positivity. 

Chabad of Camden and Burlington Counties invites the entire community to celebrate the Festival of Lights at our public Menorah lighting ceremonies and community Chanukah celebrations.

The planned events include an exciting Car Menorah Parade through Cherry Hill, an 18′ Menorah Lighting Extravaganza at the Barclay Shopping Center, the first-ever Hainesport Community Menorah lighting, Medford Chanukah Village Walk, various events by the newly established Chabad of Florence, and lightings in Moorestown, Haddonfield, and Collingswood. Chanukah will shine more than ever!

Chanukah propagates the universal message that ultimately good will prevail over evil, freedom over oppression and light over darkness.

“Especially in times like this, when there is so much divisiveness, hate, and evil in the world, we most turn the tide and spread positivity, community, unity, love, and light,” Rabbi Mendel Mangel, director of Chabad of Camden and Burlington Counties. 

“The Chanukah lights envelope us with warmth, joy, strength and inspiration,” he added. “Such is the purpose of the many community-wide celebrations organized by Chabad and held in various locations throughout the Chanukah Holiday.”

“Despite some hateful acts perpetrated on the streets of our neighborhood, which might make some people cower in fear, we stand tall and continue spreading acts of goodness and kindness,” the rabbi continued. “Not only do we not diminish our activities, we’ve added a new Menorah lighting in our area- the first Hainesport Township Menorah Lighting.”

Public dignitaries and community leaders will attend the ceremonies and will assist in kindling the giant “Menorahs of Light”.

Join Chabad in a public display of unity at one of many exciting Menorah Kindling Ceremonies taking place in the South Jersey area. Bring the children and make this your special family Chanukah celebration. We are looking forward to your participation!
