Giant Menorah stands tall in Martin Place, Sydney

Chabad is pleased to announce that the Giant (10 metre high) Chanukah Menorah has been erected in Martin Place in the very same place it has stood annually for the last thirty years.

This year, the following message has been prominently displayed:

“The Jewish community of Australia expresses our deepest sympathy for the families of the Martin Place tragedy. May the Lights of the festival of Chanukah bring comfort and warmth to our nation”

After lengthy discussions and consultation with the authorities and communal leaders, the decision was made to cancel the Chanukah Menorah Lighting Ceremony in Martin Place, scheduled for the third night of Chanukah, Thursday 18 December.

"Whilst the event was cancelled, the presence of the Giant Menorah  sends a powerful message that light will always overcome darkness.", said said Rabbi Elimelech Levy, Director of Chabad Youth NSW and coordinator of the annual "Chanukah in the City" celebration.

"As we mourn the loss of life and the atrocity that has taken place, people of goodwill will continue to shine the light of freedom and communal harmony, which is what the Chanukah Menorah is all about."
