9' Menorah erected on Plandome Rd

Manhasset residents will gather on Sunday, Dec. 5 at 3:00 p.m. for Manhasset’s annual Menorah Lighting and Hanukkah Celebration.

Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth will ignite a giant 9 foot Menorah erected on the Town Hall front lawn as a symbol of religious and ethnic tolerance.

The event will be kicked off with a special Hanukkah rendition, presented by the Manhasset High School Orchestra and will conclude with a stunning chocolate “Gelt” drop from a Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Truck.

Expect to be amazed by an incredible fire dance performance. Attendees will receive a Hanukkah swag bag containing fresh Donuts, Latkes and Hanukkah goodies.

The Manhasset Menorah Lighting is hosted by the Town of North Hempstead and Chabad of Manhasset and is open to all residents. Don’t be alarmed if you spot a giant Dreidel Mascot, somehow it always shows up. It will take place on the North Hempstead Town Hall front lawn, on Plandome Road.

“We felt that it was important to make this year’s Chanukah celebration bigger and better than previous years. Chanukah is a time to come together and to celebrate all of the silent miracles in our life,” said Sarale Paltiel, director of Chabad of Manhasset.

The event is sponsored by Carvel, King Kullen, Manhasset Jewelers, North Shore University Hospital, Raindew & Showcase Kitchens.

As a preparation for the holiday, an all-in-one Chanukah kit will be delivered to Manhasset residents. Reserve your “Chanukah in a Box” and celebrate the holiday in style! Go to: to reserve your box and learn more about the event.
