In honor of the first night of Chanukah, Chabad of Duluth kicked off the Festival of Lights with a celebration at the Miller Hill Mall.
In addition to lighting the Menorah, the traditional Chanukah celebration included jelly donuts fried in oil, chocolate coins, and plenty of dreidals for all to enjoy.
"Not everybody has the opportunity to celebrate on their own, so the fact that we're able to bring it to the public sphere is great," said Rabbi Mendy Ross, the Director of Chabad Duluth. "Chanukah is really about publicizing the miracle. We light the menorah every night, and it's all about bringing that light to others. A little bit of light can dispel a lot of darkness, and if you see darkness in the world, just smile, be a light to one another."
Chabad of Duluth also provided Menorahs and candles for attendees to take home and light the next seven nights of Chanukah.
