    Sunday night marked the first night of Chanukah and in the Town of Georgina. The community came together to celebrate at the annual Menorah lighting that took place in Keswick organized by Chabad Jewish Centre of Georgina.

    Even the snowy conditions couldn’t stop the hundreds of people in attendance, young and old came to celebrate this joyous holiday with Music, Latkes (potato pancakes), Suvganiot (jelly doughnuts), and even a Chanukah Chocolate coin Gelt drop by the local Georgina Fire Department.

    Chanukah is celebrated as a tribute to the heroes of long ago, the Maccabees whose courage and refusal to surrender in the face of terrible and overwhelming odds blazed a trail for the survival of the Jewish people and the freedom to practice the Jewish faith.

    The event, which was co-sponsored in memory of Larry Brenner by his family, was highlighted by a holiday greeting from Mayor Margaret Quirk on behalf of the town of Georgina. As well as greetings from Member of Parliament Scot Davidson on behalf of the government of Canada.

    The lighting began with Mayor Quirk igniting the flame and MP Davidson lighting the middle branch called the Shamash. Dr Noah Turk from the Keswick Kids Dental was honored with reciting the blessing over the First candle, followed by a choir from the Chabad Jewish Hebrew School in Georgina.

    Rabbi Yossi Vorovitch from Chabad of Georgina expressed to the crowd the teachings from the Lubavitcher  Rebbe that Chanukah symbolizes triumph of freedom over oppression, of spirit over matter, of light over darkness. Rabbi Yossi requested that all bring this light home with us and extend it to our neighbors and even further into our communities. That we offer that light if we see someone in need.
