North Hempstead and Chabad of Manhasset to Host Chanukah Festival & Menorah Lighting at Mary Jane Davies Green on December 18 at 3 p.m.
North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Supervisor Jennifer DeSena, the Town Board, the Chabad of Manhasset, and the Manhasset Park District will be hosting a Chanukah Festival on Sunday, December 18, 2022 starting at 3 p.m. at Mary Jane Davies Green in Manhasset.
The event, which is sponsored by North Shore University Hospital at Northwell Health, will feature musical performances including a performance by the Manhasset High School band, live ice carving of a menorah, a chocolate gelt drop with assistance from the Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department, and the lighting of the menorah.
“This event has become a wonderful annual tradition to celebrate together as one community,” said Rabbi Mendel Paltiel of the Chabad of Manhasset.
Chanukah, which runs this year from Sunday, December 18 to Monday, December 26, celebrates the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, when it is said that one day's worth of sacred oil lasted for eight days.
Mary Jane Davies Green is located on Plandome Road across from Town Hall at 220 Plandome Road, Manhasset. Parking will be available in the Town Hall parking lot and in a portion of the Manhasset Park District’s lot behind Mary Jane Davies Park.
