City Hall Menorah Lighting tonight!

Governor Corzine to light Hoboken Menorah

Chabad of Hoboken will once again be sponsoring a Chanukah Menorah lighting tonight at 5pm!

Preceding the lighting, a children’s program will take place inside of City Hall – 94 Washington Street (3rd floor) at 4 pm. Children will be entertained with a Puppet Show on the story of Chanukah, arts and crafts and more.

At 5 pm the menorah will be lit outside of City Hall by Governor Jon Corzine, with Donuts, Latkes, and Menorah kits will be handed out. The event is co-sponsored by Shoprite and by the Weisfeld Family.

Thanks and happy Chanukah!

public spectacles of religious observances in public places have nothing to do w compassion, whiner. And a christmas tree lighting i don’t believe you will find officiated by a religious leader.

Lighting the Menorah and lighting the Christmas tree is a balanced Jewish and Christian approach. Have a great season of peace.

The Christmas tree was not considered a Christmas tree. It was a holiday tree.

I have no real problem with the religious aspect of lighting the Menorah for Happy Chanukah; however, I have heard many comments regarding changing the name of the tree from Christmas to Holiday. I personally perfer a Christmas tree.
