GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - The Chabad UF Jewish community center invited residents to Bo Diddley plaza to celebrate the 4th night of Chanukah and to witness the biggest menorah lighting in Alachua County.

The menorah lighting signifies unity, peace, and freedom. They are also honoring u-s armed forces and healthcare heroes

Rabbi Berl Goldman said this event I supposed to bring people together

“The menorah if you look at it it’s a 8 branch candelabra and it is individual. The character of each person is different, we might pray differently. We may have different political beliefs, what ever it might be yet at the center, at the core, we’re all connected. And that’s one of the messages of the menorah. Good over evil, light over darkness.”

This is 4th event so far and they will host an event for each day or night of the holiday. Tonight’s guests enjoyed live performances, and music, and enjoy tasty traditional Chanukah treats
