• Hundreds Celebrate Chanukah At “Light up AmsterDAM”

    Hundreds of tourists and residents packed the Dam Square across the Royal Palace in Amsterdam, for the annual “Light Up AmsterDAM” event, organized by Chabad Shliach Rabbi Menachem Evers ● Israeli ambassador Chaim Divon addressed the crowd and recited the blessings ● Full Story, Pictures & Video

    Thursday afternoon in Amsterdam it was pouring rain and very strong winds.

    Organiser of the annual Light up AmsterDAM Shliach Menachem Evers sent a letter to the Rebbe, and a little before the event started the rain stopped and the winds calmed down.

    It was a beautiful scene to see hundreds being able to show their Jewish pride, sing and dance together, and enjoy the warm Chanukah atmosphere in the heart of Amsterdam, on the world famous Dam Square in front of the Royal Palace.

    Israeli ambassador Chaim Divon, spoke very warmly and said that there are many other events that evening he chose to be at this lighting because this is the centre and heart of Amsterdam and of Holland and it’s very important and a big honor to celebrate it united together with hundreds of people. He was also given the honor to light the menorah. And danced for a long time with the Shluchim, tmimim and crowd.

    Shliach Menachem Evers spoke about that although in the world, and particularly in Europe it’s sometimes hard to feel safe, we can learn from the Maccabiem, who trusted in G’D and were able to overcome the strong enemy.

    A lot of people said that this beautiful event was very special and emotional, the fact that we can publicly be proud for what we are gives courage and strength.

    A group of Tmimim came with a mitzva tank from Yeshive Brunoy and added a lot to the joy.
