And there was light

The greatest "kippukiah" in the world IRabbi Harry lead a lighted procession from the synagogue to Centennial Square where the Victoria High Rhythm and Blues Band were warming up the crowd…

This year the privilege of lighting the Ḥanukkiah went to the children at Congregation Emanu-El’s public lighting on December 19. As it was the last night of Ḥanukkah, there were lots of delighted children.

The children’s lighting, the music, the dancing, the communal spirit and the sufganiot brought joy to those brave comers who were undaunted by the weather. Todah rabah to Aaron and his team and Shout it out for Victoria High Rhythm and Blues Band who were fabulous.
