November 26, 2013 > Chanukah Lighting
Submitted By Moshe Fuss
Chabad of Fremont will light a public 9-foot menorah erected at Pacific Commons Retail Center, followed by a community-wide celebration on the seventh night of Chanukah, Tuesday, December 3. The lighting ceremony will be followed by dancing, singing, childrenÕs activities, a free raffle and plenty of food including potato latkes and hot coffee.
The public menorah lighting was organized by Chabad-Lubavitch Rabbi Moshe Fuss, who remarked, ÒThe Menorah serves as a symbol of Fremont's dedication to preserve and encourage the right and liberty of all its citizens to worship freely, openly, and with pride. In America, a nation founded upon and vigorously protective of the right of every person to practice his or her religion, free from restraint and persecution, the Menorah takes on profound significance, embodying both religious and constitutional principles.Ó
Tanya Shore who plans to attend the celebration commented, "I want my kids to grow up with pride in their Jewish heritage and a feeling of equality and self-confident as an American. Chabad LubavitchÕs Chanukah Menorahs are arguably one of the most important developments ever to help my childÕs education. I wish they had this where I grew up.Ó
