Menorah lighting, holiday concerts – and libraries have yoga and mystery games


Hanukkah begins at sunset on November 28.

Menorah Lighting at South Shore Plaza

BRAINTED – Shaloh House Chabad will celebrate the start of Chanukah with menorah lighting at 3 p.m. on Sunday, November 28, at South Shore Plaza, 250 Granite St., Braintree. Lighting will take place on the lower level of the mall near the Apple Store.

From sunset on Sunday, November 28, and until December 6, Jewish families will celebrate Hanukkah with a variety of traditions. Hanukkah is the celebration of the restoration by Jews of the Maccabees of the Jewish temple in Jerusalem in the 2nd century BCE. Tradition says that the Maccabees only had lamp oil one night, but the lamps in the temple menorah remained lit during the eight nights of the rededication ceremony.

Sunday’s event will feature live music, crafts for kids and traditional gelt. For more information, contact [email protected] or visit www.shalohhouse.com.
