Celebrating The Festival of Lights in Greenwich

Hundreds of members of Chabad of Greenwich gathered on the lawn of the YMCA Greenwich at sundown Tuesday to light a towering Menorah to mark the beginning of the eight-day celebration of Hanukkah. Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights , began at sundown Tuesday and continues until Dec. 24. The Jewish holiday commemorates the story of the Maccabean Revolt against Syrian rulers in present day Israel 2,300 years ago.
