    Chanukah in Springfield, Illinois was one for the books! Chabad of Springfield, directed by Rabbi and Mrs. Mendy Turen, was full of action from the start of Chanukah until it’s final moments; from programs to house visits, from Menorah lightings to a Grand Menorah Parade.

    On the fifth night of Chanukah, a public Menorah lighting was organized at the local mall. This year’s “Honorary Lamplighter”, Robert Rabin, a heroic first-responder, was chosen to light the Menorah. Mayor Jim Langfelder honored the Jewish community with his presence.

    The state capital’s Jewish community enjoyed a buffet of fresh donuts, Latkes, cookies and hot drinks.

    Rabbi Turen also addressed the crowd on the significance of the holiday of Chanukah, stressing the imminence of Moshiach’s coming and encouraging everyone to add in something additional.

    On the final night of Chanukah – Zos Chanukah, the Capital of Illinois was lit up with a Grand Car Menorah Parade for the second year in a row.

    With twenty vehicles joining together for this remarkable event, the entire city was abuzz with excitement. Police led the parade, making sure the drive was smooth, without any other vehicles disturbing or extra stops at red lights.

    The Parade went throughout the city, on many of the main run roads across Springfield. It also passed by many important parts of the city, such as the Illinois State Capitol, Governor’s Mansion, and the Old State Capitol.

    The Parade began in the large parking lot of the new Chabad House, with the culmination being on a property that was donated to Chabad of Springfield a few years ago, where the cars parked and everyone participated in the lighting of the large Menorah.

    A special thank you to Yossi Grimberg and Mendel Spielman, who spent many hours building the Menorahs for the Parade, and helped assure the Parade would run as smoothly as possible.
