Leaders of the Oklahoma City Jewish community have extended their invitation to a ceremonial lighting of a Hannukkah (also spelled Chanukah) Memorah on Tuesday evening (December 16). The event will begin at 5 p.m. at the Chicksaw Bricktown Ballpark.
U.S. Senator-elect James Lankford will join Rabbi Ovadia Goldman of the Chabad Community Center and other guests for the event. In a Facebook post, Rabbi Goldman said, “Help us celebrate the 1st night of Chanukah with the 2nd Annual Light Up Bricktown community menorah lighting event, with special greetings by the Honorable Senator-Elect James Lankford!”
There will be music, latkes, jelly doughnuts, and Chanukah gifts for all. This is a free community event, so families and friends are encouraged to celebrate together.
