The World's Largest Hanukah Menorah here in New York City
Everything is bigger in New York! Skyscrapers, Broadway billboards, so why not a giant Menorah for the holiday of Hanukah?!?!
On December 20th, the first night of Hanukah, the 32-foot-high, gold-colored, 4,000-pound steel menorah will be lit. It’s located at Fifth Avenue and 59th Street near Central Park. As Hanukah lasts 8 nights, a new candle will be lit every night at 5:30 pm (except for Dec. 23, at 3:30 pm and Dec. 24, 8:30 pm in honor of the Sabbath). Speaking of Menorahs, this month, The Jewish Museum invited beloved artist and illustrator Maurice Sendak (of “Where the Wild Things Are”) to choose a group of Hanukah lamps for display at a special exhibition.
